A team of dedicated volunteers from Nuneaton and North Warwickshire Family History Society has placed findings from its WW1 centenary project online, digitally recording the lives of those commemorated on local war memorials.

Nuneaton and North Warwickshire Family History Society’s growing First World War Memorials project is now freely available online, including a fully searchable Those Who Fell database.


The huge project, led by member Celia Parton, is nearing completion after several years but its comprehensive findings so far can be viewed on the NNWFHS website, which is being regularly updated.

The men's names have been transcribed and volunteers have painstakingly researched military, family history and newspaper records and archives to find and record a detailed description of everyone on the memorials.


Along with Celia and the team of dedicated volunteers, webmaster Ian Shuter has also devoted hundreds of hours to make this a fitting memorial to the fallen men and women of north Warwickshire, which you can find out more about here.


Anyone with pictures or information relating to the project can contribute them via a special section of the website or email Celia.
