• forget me not servicemen's names

    This download shows the names of Cheriton servicemen who lost their lives in the First World War. Research revealed information about a number of fallen servicemen's former home addresses in Cheriton and local historian Annie Bamford generously shared her research into these servicemen's names from local war memorials, which we were able to contribute additional information to through our own research. This information enabled us to reach out and educate a much larger group of people as to the heritage of their homes and the soldiers who had once lived there. With the soldiers home addresses, we were able to write to 100 local households inviting them to display a wreath over the weekend of the WWI Armistice. This aspect of the project would become a very poignant, town-wide memorial to the men who died in the war and educated a large group of people through public noticeboards, social media and word of mouth.
