An exhibition displaying research on the 31 men from World War I listed on the memorial was held on 27 September 2014 and this was followed a year later by an exhibition on the 6 men from World War II listed on the memorial. Material from the exhibitions has also been displayed in Tadley Library, The Hurst Community College and St Paul's Church.

TADS continues to research the 37 men and would be delighted to receive information and photographs relating to any aspect of the Tadley Memorial and it's history.

Medieval Tadley

The TADS project group is currently researching into the possible existence of a medieval village near to St Peter Church.


Blue Gown

Does any one know the whereabouts of a painting of the Derby winner 'Blue Gown', thought at one time to have been hanging in Hawley House.After some research TADS know that a painting did exist and that at some time it was probably sold through Sotherby's. The jockey was 'Tiny' Wells.


The Tadley Roll

There are written reports that a long roll was drawn by local resident during the early days of Tadley School. Probably similar in style to the Bayeux tapestry, it included pictures of many of the then local characters.If you know of roll, or anything s whereabouts, please tell us. If we ever find it we would dearly like to photograph it for future reference.
