War Memorials

There are a growing number of “war memorial” websites. It’s impossible to keep track of them all, but my favourites are those which, like this site, try to tell something of the lives and deaths of the men. These are some of them:

Unchanged by Time – the Lancing War Memorial in Sussex.

Another one from Sussex – Chailey 1914-1918

Malvern Remembers – searchable by name, regiment, school or church.

Chesterfield Sherwoods on the Somme – the men from the town who served with the Foresters.

And, from the same neck of the woods, Derbyshire Lads at War

Kinnethmont – one from North of the Border

And, from the other side of the Irish Sea – Ballymena 1914 -1918.

One sponsored by a Government Department commemorating its employees – Department of Trade & Industry

Lastly, the first on the web and still one of the best – Northallerton Memorials Project

Other sites
