A few words...

 

Since 2014 I have been adding names and any information i can find about the men from both WW1 and WW2 on the memorial.

 

And as of 2018 and into 2019, more pages have been added.

Including the Returned from Duty pages.

 

Whilst  doing my research  I have found  evidence of some soldiers who served

before 1914

So i have started a new page called Pre 1914

to record their names.

 

These pages show my progress in researching all the men who are on the memorial or served and  returned from duty from not only from WW1 and WW2, but any other war.

 

A few pictures are also included.

 

Discovering those who were demobilized, injured and found too young to serve. 

 

In the Gallery there are  extra pictures of their CWGC gravestones, family graves and more. 

 

Thank you
