A First World War remembrance project funded by Heritage Lottery
The Heritage Lottery funded Reveille project, has created a virtual memorial for local men who were lost in battle. Its purpose is to conserve the records of those who perished on the Somme in the First World War.
Over three hundred local soldiers have no gravestones, but have their name etched on the Thiepval memorial, you can view the records of local men who are commemorated at Thiepval on the CottonTown website.
Thanks are due to the volunteers who helped to create these records by generously contributing their time and expertise. Volunteer recruitment is on-going.
You may also be able to help by providing information. If a Thiepval soldier is a family member, you may have anecdotal data and/or photographs which we could add to their record.
