Fleetville Diaries is an organisation dedicated to recording the past life of this eastern suburb of the beautiful city of St Albans, Hertfordshire. Fleetville came into existence at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries with the arrival of a number of manufacturing concerns.
Our current projects are:
* ‘The Orchid King’, Frederick Sander, and his immediate family are buried at Hatfield Road Cemetery; we are paying tribute to his extraordinary life by restoring his grave.
* Collecting memories of Ballito Hosiery Mill.
* ‘Right Up My Street’ – a history of Beaumont Avenue.
* IT training for historians
