WW1 Centenary Commemorations

  

Life and Death in Ludlow

1914 - 1918 Interactive Display 

 

2014 marked the centenary of the commencement of WW1 and also the opening of Henley Road Cemetery. 

The 1914-18 project commemorates both events in a snapshot, aims to remember those buried in Henley Road Cemetery and commemorated on the WW1 boards, who served and fell in WWI.

An interactive display for each year from 1914-1918 is available, along with snippets of social history.

Scans of the original documents from the Town Council archives may also be available shortly.

 

The interactive display can be access by clicking the link here - Please read the notes below for best way to access and navigation instructions.
