World War One Stories

BACK to TOP                 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

For the past year and more FoHC members, especially Judith Dean,  have been recording the stories of those people who gave their lives as a result of World War One (the Great War) who are recorded in the common wield, not in the CWG areas.

Some particularly interesting stories from the CWG areas have however been included.

A linked list of the people so far recorded is below.

Where people are buried or remembered in overseas cemeteries, there is a link to photos and basic information.  (The idea originally was to see how many people from Hastings were buried in each cemetery, but this has not proved practicable.)

Each listed cemetery is linked to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemetery information.

If you know of others, or have more to add to a story please let FoHC know at info(at) [please substitute @ for at - this is to avoid spamming]
