Welcome to the KM Group digital archive, which has now been expanded to include the First World War period.

You can view the years 1914-18 with our special introductory offer for a full month's access (see the 'Shop'). The archive provides a fascinating insight into Kent's leading role in the Great War and will prove an invaluable tool for anyone interested in the period.

In addition, you can view the archive from 1852 to 1912 for free* thanks to a grant from the - Your Heritage Lottery Fund and a dedicated group of volunteers who have worked on this project. By offering free access to these pages* the KM Group hopes this complete archive will not only offer schools, colleges and universities a unique learning tool to explore Kent's history during the Victorian and Edwardian eras but give the wider community a fascinating snapshot of life in the county.

From transport to technology, health and education, crime and politics, these pages contain stories that will fascinate anyone who has a link with Kent and particularly those researching family history.

Beware, this digital archive is addictive!

Thank you to everyone who has put many hours of work into making this digital archive possible.

* Free access in the UK only.
