Researching local WW1 servicemen for West Deeping Heritage Group’s next talk

Wednesday 25th November   “We will remember them”

  • At West Deeping Village Hall
  • Refreshments from 7 p.m. for a 7.30 start
  • Admission £2.50 on the door.

Revd Martin Brebner talks about his research on the Roll of Honour for the Uffington Group of parishes, which includes Barholm, Braceborough, Greatford, Tallington, Uffington and West Deeping.  He went far beyond the memorials in local churches (even to the battlefields) in the quest for photographs, service records and commonwealth war graves.

Martin has prepared a series of information sheets on those who lost their lives which will be displayed at the talk.

Also on display – in folders – will be the Poster Gallery previously shown at “The Deepings Remember” exhibition in November 2014. This includes several West Deeping people, some of whom died, others who survived.
