Newspaper articles - Hatches, Matches and Despatches

Towards the end of the 19th century, and growing in popularity in the 20th century, it became common practice to send reports of weddings and funerals to the local newspaper.  The information these reports contain are a rich source of information for the family historian.  We are grateful to the British Newspaper Archive for making digitised copies of The Evesham Standard available, from which these reports have been transcribed.
