Welcome to BirtwistleWiki

Our Contribution is a place to discover people from the Armadale, Serpentine-Jarrahdale, and Gosnells districts who served in the Great War 1914-1918, and those from the Armadale district who served during World War Two. The stories of the World War II personnel will be upgraded as the Australian Archives digitise their records. The Cemeteries section allows you to search cemeteries in Armadale and learn about the people buried there.
