Even though Buckinghamshire is a relatively
small county, recording the details of the thousands of
Buckinghamshire men who lost their lives in the First World War is an
intense undertaking for our small team. But we are enthusiastic and
determined to make a worthwhile contribution. You will appreciate that
even though the project is almost complete there are still a few gaps in the records and it is
hoped that these gaps will be filled as the project progresses.
So far our researches have focussed on
documenting military and genealogical evidence. But as our efforts
become better known we hope site-visitors will send us family stories
and photographs which we will try to incorporate. So please do not
hesitate to contact us by clicking the ‘Contact Us’ button. It may be
possible for us to digitally scan precious photographs in the security
of your own home.
We hope that this website will be of interest to
military historians, family historians and schools as they
undertake historical projects. Please help us to maintain our research
impetus because we feel
we owe it to those brave men who never returned to enjoy the broad
fields of Buckinghamshire.
