Conscientious Objection in Oldham during World War One by John Fidler

live@thelibrary. At Crompton Library , Farrow Street East, Shaw, Oldham OL2 8QY, Oldham. United Kingdom.

Around 16,000 men were recorded as conscientious objectors during World War One. John Fidler tells the compelling story of the 150 conscientious objectors from Oldham. Some were assigned civilian 'work of national importance' while others were conscripted into the Non-Combatant Corps; a few suffered prison to defend their freedom of conscience.
