    Thank you for taking this on.
    My grandfather lived in Swanscombe as a child, before 1900. We had relatives we lost track of, among them young men who may have served in the war.

    What a marvellous first round of research, congratulations from the Grangetown Local History Society, Cardiff who have just begun their WW1 project.

    Dear Chris, many thanks for saying hello to Wokingham Remembers and delighted to make contact with a Wokingham 'Old Boy'. I looked at your site the other day and am going to nick the ''Survivors' page - a great way to help people remember their own family. Keep in touch.

    Walter Bareham was my grandfather and Walter John my father. Visited the top house a while ago and glad to see it is still there as both I and my father did some of our courting there! Nice to see pictures of the Top House at the turn of the century. I remember that my grandmother (Alice Bobby) paid peanuts for the fixtures and fittings then.

    Robert and William Roger Walter were two of my father's brothers. Father told me that Robert was blown up on a munitions dump. Father was also on the Somme serving with the Royal Artillery

    An excellent site. I don't know if you or your visitors agree but I am trying to push the Town Council into erecting a full length, physical Roll at the existing Memorial.

    Jarvis Thomas was my Nans Brother, Christina Hills Nee Jarvis and he was killed in 1916, his grave is in the crematory.

  • Gary Vaughan(Wednesday, September 04 13 11:22 am BST)

    Wonderful site. These men need to be remembered. As a child growing up in the area, I went to school with children with the same surnames as many of the fallen. Keep up the good work.


11th November 2018

Today, on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, we particularly remember all those who gave their lives in the great war, no matter which side they fought on.

We will remember him.

A proud partner of the IWM First World War Centenary
