Most local families have been touched in some way by this war and although most of this generation has passed on, the memories of this traumatic period in British history survive in oral accounts, handed down to children and grandchildren who are still alive today.
In most communities there is at least one war memorial that commemorates the names of local men and women who fell during the conflicts. There are also more personal and tangible pieces of evidence - medals, photographs, letters and postcards sent back from the Front Line, and remnants of military uniform such as regimental cap badges.
These clues, passed down through a family as heirlooms, or often still hidden in boxes waiting to be discovered in attics and cellars, can provide a gateway into the world of some of the individuals commemorated on this website.
