Will Warren (1906 - 1890):
Will Warren was born in England and worked in a printing firm. During the First World War a bomb had demolished his bedroom while he was sleeping. In 1971 he decided to come to Ulster and joined a Fellowship of Reconciliation work camp in Derry. He moved into a house in the Bogside, and was particularly concerned regarding the children in the vicinty. He often approached the paramilitaries in order to urge against retaliation. He was a Quaker and hated violence. In 1977 he had to leave Derry since his health was deteriorating. In 1982 Will Warren House was opened as a base for community groups and as a memorial to his courage and commitment.
