Remembrance Page

As part of the original fund-raising campaign for Lest We Forget, donors were offered the chance to create a digital plaque in remembrance of someone from the 1914-1918 generation. This could be a family member, or someone they had heard of who had inspired them.

The following provides the details of those people we wish to commemorate.
