    Alexina Campbell Pert
    Born 1921, Alloa, Clacmannanshire.
    Married John Adamson 1945, Alloa
    Died 1989

    The family story is that she worked in a munitions factory near Nottingham in World War Two.

    Does anyone know if there are any records of women who worked in munitions factories and the factories that they worked in; and if so where they are available?

    Many thanks,
    Dave

    It is possible that the lady was conscripted / volunteered into the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) and worked at a facility in Nottingham. My late mother joined them (never asked her if she was conscripted) and served at ROF Nottingham (Chilwell) from 'X' into 1946. See: Auxiliary Territorial Service - Wikipedia

    There are threads here on the ATS. It may be worth, long-term, to apply for a Service Record.

    ROF Nottingham was a factory manufacturing guns. If she was in munitions (as in ammunition as opposed to guns) it may be she was at Ruddington.

    Thank you very much everyone. Will take a look at the material you've suggested. As you say davidpfpo it's probably worth trying to get hold of her service records.

    Thanks again,
    Dave
