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
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.
Returned from Duty - WW2 including Home Guard and Civilian organisations
