We have so far transcribed the names from 69 war memorials and plaques at different sites around the South Warwickshire area. From them we have carried out more detailed research on 1053 of the fallen named on the memorials and the results can be seen by clicking here for the Database.
 
Some may have noticed that we had, until this week, failed to identify 10 men from different places, men who had also eluded the Warwickshire Roll of Honour and other local history groups. They are listed below. Therefore we set our "Person Finder General", Wendy, to work and that list is now down to 1, do you know anything about Percy Owen at Exhall. Wendy continues to work to find, and more importantly confirm, the right men with Percy Owen being the most elusive.

As part of our ongoing project to transcribe every war memorial, church plaque and other memorials to the fallen in various conflicts we have so far transcribed the names from 58 different sites around the South Warwickshire area. From them we have carried out more detailed research on more than 900 of the fallen named on the memorials and the results can be seen by clicking here for the Database. We would very much like to add a photograph for every man and woman we find and would ask that you submit any photographs you may have of the fallen soliders of WW1 and WW2 so that we can publish here in a central database for South Warwickshire. Please just click on the link below to upload the photograph(s) and don't forget to add your name and email address as we will not use it without your express permission.
