Casualties of the Great War - Menu

Also linked from the Other Resources


This page contains links to some of the other pages of this website which mention either a casualty of the Great War, people who participated, a memorial, or a hospital.

It is not a full or even a partial account, but simply a pointer to snippets of information which may be of interest to historians.

In 2014 a comprehensive survey of the war memorials in Malvern was undertaken by the Malvern Family History Society, and extensive research into casualties has been being undertaken by volunteers at Malvern Museum in memory of those who died in the 1914 - 1918 war.

Malvern Museum has published three very interesting soft cover books about the Great War, based on extracts from local newspapers of the time; see references below.
