Their Name Liveth for Evermore Carshalton's First World War Roll of Honour by Andrew Arnold

Their Name Liveth for Evermore Carshalton's First World War Roll of Honour


Their Name Liveth for Evermore Carshalton's First World War Roll of Honour by Andrew Arnold

Carshalton in Surrey was deeply affected by the First World War: over 1,900 local men enlisted to fight. Of those men, 243 lost their lives and are commemorated on the war memorial. As we find ourselves commemorating the centenary of the war, it is more important than ever that these men are not forgotten. Drawing on over six years of research, this book brings together the stories of the lives - and deaths - of these men. Utilising a wide variety of sources and complemented by many previously unseen photographs, their stories are told here, from the fourteen sets of brothers who were killed, to the devastating effect of the Somme campaign in which nineteen local men lost their lives on the opening day alone.
