Remembered Today:

Cecil Edward Russell - Boy Labour Department

Recommended Posts

I have recently found an obituary, in the "Luton News", dated 14th November 1957, for Reverend Cecil Edward Russell. I had previously established that he was Vicar of Flamstead, Hertfordshire during the Second World War but I was drawn by a comment in his obituary which read ....

" ..... Mr Russell was well known for his organising ability in those days., and during the First World War served in the Ministry of National Service, and eventually had charge of the Boy Labour Department ..... "

I simply wondered if anyone might have any knowledge of, or records for, the Ministry of National Service or the Boy Labour Department and could help me understand what role Cecil Russell played in these organisations ?
