Do you know where you're going to? 

Do you like the things that life is showing you?

Where are you going to, do you know? 

 

The Honourable Marcus Garvey said:

 "A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots"

 

Knowing who you are will give you the key to your past to help you unlock your potential. 

 

Here at BlackPoppyRose we are that key!

 

The services we offer are:

By recording their lives we provides an insight into who they are and who you are as a result of them.

Exploring their childhoods, jobs, experiences, challenges and what they are ready to share.   

 

Exploring service history i.e If your Brother, Father, Uncle, Grandfather or Great Grand father served in 'any capacity within wars'
