The Living Memory Association

Edinburgh's Reminiscence Project • Established 1986



Regular group activities

There is always something happening at The Little Shop of Memory. Here is more about our weekly/monthly activities.

Reminiscence and School groups

We very much want our reminiscence centres to be busy and well-used so we are happy to have group visits. Whether you represent a care home, community group, club or school class, contact us to arrange a visit.

Memory boxes

If you want to run your own reminiscence group we have memory boxes that you can borrow. Find out more here.

War records Research

We are happy to help you research your relative's service records from World War 1, World War 2 and other conflicts since.
Stan Eadie can access records from The Imperial War Museum and other service records and can help find the details of servicemen and women if they died during conflict.

How to do

Please visit The Little Shop of Memory to fill out your request details, or meet with Stan from Saturday to Wednesday.
