How we use your data

The memories that you share will be stored on the Archive section of this website, with copies also going into the permanent collections at the Local History and Archives Centre based at Lewisham Council.  

The recollections will inspire a range of creative public events and activities that will take place across Lewisham in 2022.

With your permission, your contribution will be preserved as a permanent resource for use in research, publications, education, lectures, broadcasting, creative and cultural events / activities and the internet. 

Where we are unable to use contributions, they will be permanently deleted with no data stored or shared. 

If your contribution has been used in any way on this website, you can ask us to remove it by contacting the In Living Memory programme team: We may be unable to remove your contributions from publications already in circulation.
