Wokingham Remembers

Following my article on the Great War, I have been contacted by Wokingham Remembers, a research group who have been building some knowledge of our area’s involvement in this event. They have a website here: www.wokinghamremembers.com.

Amongst other things, the group has posted the biographies of the 217 men on the Town Hall War Memorial, which includes our first loss in the war, Arthur Turner of Langborough Road who was killed during the Mons battle (28th August 1914).

    Not anywhere near as professional but Earley residents may be interested that I have created a Facebook page with details of Earley Residents killed in WW1. As I have done this myself its a slow process but if anyone would like to contribute information or take a look I would be pleased to hear from them, its called Earley Remembers.

    Reply Thanks for your contribution. It will be good to have this additional memorial.
