The Men on the

War Memorials


 



      Upwey & Broadwey War Memorials


As time goes by, the names on the village war memorials, of those brave souls from the parishes of Upwey and Broadwey who gave their lives in the two World Wars, become just that - a name.


As part of the Village History Collection we would like to bring the names to life by including information about the men, where they lived, what they did before joining up and their families - perhaps a photo.


We've made a start, as you will see in this document.  As well as the names on the memorials we have discovered other men who had a connection to the villages and have included them as well. (Searched for village names on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website(cwgc.org)).


We now need your help - were you related to or did you know any of the men?  


Just get in touch with Sue Virgin: sue.virgin@gmail.com

or telephone 01305 267759
