We are pleased to announce that our tribute to the Fallen of WW1 commemorated on Swanley War Memorial is now available .
The book tells the story of the men and their families and portrays them as real people, rather than simply name, rank and number, depicting the sacrifice of both individual families and an entire community.
The book is illustrated with photos of the local area at the time and includes family histories, newspaper obituaries, family photographs of the men, their medals etc. along with personal stories passed down through the generations.
Whether or not you have a relative named on the Memorial we are sure you will find this book both informative and moving. If you are unsure if a relative is named on the Memorial check out the following page.
Thank you to all those family members who contributed photos and memories and added so much to our research. There are 5 men we have not been able to identify and hope that relatives may see our book and come forward.
