Our database is created from the Transcriptions of WW1 War Memorials, Plaque and Rolls of Honour containing the names of the men and women of the SWFHS area who fell in WW1. By no means yet complete the database now contains the records of 1155 men who fell in WW1 and we continue to add to it. Today, 16 Nov 2021, we added the details of the 33 men who are named on the Box to Conway panel of the Stratford on Avon War Memorial situated in Memorial Park, Stratford. We are now researching the remaining 4 men named on the Conway to Davies panel.
The information collected is ofter wide ranging and includes details of their Military Service, details of how, when, where and why they died along with personal and family history details. In due course we will be adding photographs and documents to the database. This is a long term project which will take another couple of years to complete at current pace and we do update the website when we add new data. Gaps in the data mean that we have yet to find that info. Click the last name for more details of the soldier. At the moment the database is only searchable by one field so we suggest either selecting All in the number of records for display then clicking the column header Last and then scroll down or search by last name.
Do you have photographs, documents or information about any of the men and women of South Warwickshire?, if you do we would be happy to received and publish them. Use our upload form by clicking here.
