About our Society

The Society was founded to preserve the heritage of the village of Maulden and the surrounding area. We are building, together with St. Mary’s Church, a permanent local history archive to be maintained for future generations.

The Society holds regular meetings, usually on the last Thursday of the month, with guest speakers and provides a social gathering of people interested in their local history. Each summer we try to organise outside visits with expert guidance.

In addition, the Society, together with St. Mary’s Church, is responsible for opening the Ailesbury Mausoleum and Crypt to the public three times annually. Arrangements may be made for private visits of ten or more persons.

Membership of the Society costs £12 annually which includes free admittance to all meetings. Occasionally a surcharge may be required for outside visits. Visitors are very welcome and may pay the Visitor’s fee of £2.50. Visitors are limited to 3 visits in one year.

If you would like more information about the Society please contact the Secretary by e-mail using the online form on this website.

    Thought I would be first to make a comment!
    Thanks Chris for setting up this website. Will be watching his survey hopefully to identify my grandparent’s ( White) grave which is one of two in front of the rubbish dump.

    My maternal great grandfather served in World War I. His name is Alfred Stanbridge. I have a picture of him in his uniform that a I would love to send to you. He died in 1917 and is buried in Egypt. He is on the Roll of Honour in Maulden. I have replicas of the medals he was given posthumously.

    I am so sorry not to have been in contact earlier but I missed your comment unfortunately. We would be very grateful to receive anything you might have about Alfred. We recently had a service at the local church to commemorate all those who died in the Great War followed by a short service at the war memorial in the village so I can assure you he is not forgotten. We are trying to publish a book about Maulden during the war and would love to include anything you might send if that is possible. Thank you so much for contacting us.
