Directory of the

Brickmakers of St Albans

I am currently collecting information on the history of Bernards Heath, St Albans, and have already included the booklet A Short History of Bernards Heath and the talk The Brickmakers of St Albans on this web site. I am particularly interested in the Brick Works and the aim is to have working notes on each of the brickmakers for which I known more than just the name and a single reference. I have decided to post these notes here for the following reasons:

It should be noted that normally I work with word documents (using footnotes, indexing facilities, etc.) so I am giving up some degree of flexibility in putting the information on a web site. Over the next few months I will be converting existing word files, as time allows, and initially the following principle brickmakers will be included are:

and the following staff/workmen

Very many new entries to be added, including information from the 1901 and 1911 censuses.  Under construction

For an overview see the talk

If you can add to the information given above tell me.
