A family that once lived in Withersfield is set to reunite.

The reunion will take place on August 25, with different branches of the family using the bank holiday to travel to Haverhill cemetary.

They will lay flowers on the family graves before heading to the White Horse pub in Withersfield.

Cousins, Grand children, brothers and sisters, as well as other relatives will be in attendance. This will be the first time that many members of this family have met.

The ancestors were traced back by Jackie Robinson-Kiddy, from Ely, and Judy Stratford, from Haverhill.

They discovered the Nunn family, who had lived in Withersfield, had had 15 children. Six of the sons went away to fight in the First World War and, miraculously, they all returned unharmed.

They used the internet and were able to find relatives as far afield as Canada and New Zealand. The Canadian relatives are hoping to take part in the reunion via Skype video link on a big screen. More than 30 people of all ages are expected to attend.
