WW1 local Villagers name Research

GREAT WAR COMMEMORATIONS

As part of the community Bere 14-18 Commemorations, a small team is researching the lives of the 301 men of our three local parishes (Bere Regis (205), Winterborne Kingston (64) & Affpuddle/Turnerspuddle (32)) who served in the forces in the Great War. Their names are listed below. If you think you are a descendent of any of the men listed and may have some family or service history or mementoes (Photos, medals, service papers, cuttings, etc ) about them, could you kindly contact Philip Ventham on 01929 471215 or email here.

We would be very pleased to speak with you. Any information, however insignificant, is of interest as very often, family recollections can fill gaps in the official records. All contributions will be acknowledged and mementoes recorded and returned.

Listing is as follows (where available) Surname, Forenames, Rank, Unit & Locality
