Our war casualties

2014 sees the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War, later known as the First World War or, in American film terminology, "WWI".   We are trying to gather the history of the people who gave their lives and are remembered on our War Memorial.

Each of the men who gave their lives are listed below and link through to their own page with detailing the information we have about them. We would love to be able to add more detail as it becomes available. See contact details below.
