Wanted: Stories of Domestic Service(December 03, 2013)
I'm working on a new book for Pen & Sword to be published in 2015. It's all about domestic service in the UK covering 1800-1950, and it will look specifically at the work from the servants' point of view.
Do you have an ancestor or relative who worked in domestic service? Did they write down their story or record it as an oral history? Would they like to see it published?
I'm looking for personal recollections of what domestic service was actually like to include in the book. Please contact me if you can help!
