"Discover the stories behind the names of the fallen on the South Gloucestershire War Memorials."

This website enables access to much of the known family and military history of many of the 1500 people named on the sixty two war memorials in South Gloucestershire.

QR (Quick Response) codes and the website address are gradually being placed near to each memorial so that anyone with a smartphone or tablet will be able to access the relevant page on this website, on the spot, bringing the people behind the names alive.

This website has been created as part of the HLF funded project: Engaging local people in South Gloucestershire with the First World War centenary, and is a work in progress. The research and checking of information is undertaken by volunteers from the various South Gloucestershire museums, heritage centres and local history groups.

If you are interested in taking part or have any relevant information please contact: museums@southglos.gov.uk.
