Romford Record

The Romford Record is the Society’s annual journal, published every year since 1968, and edited (for all but its first two issues) by Brian Evans, author of many books on our local history.

In a forward in the first issue the then President, Gordon Humby, set out the Society’s hopes for the journal:

The Romford and District Historical Society has for many years cherished the idea of commissioning and publishing miscellaneous papers on historical topics.

With this first issue it achieve this ambition, thus supplementing in print the valuable work it has been carrying out over the past decade in stimulating interest in the always noteworthy and often colourful life of the town.

As President of the Society since its inception, I have pleasure in commending both the publication and the Society to the attention of all that find delight and instruction in the study of the past.
