WW1 Memories in the Parish of Lemsford
Lemsford Local History Group publish a WW1 Website
By Andy Chapman
In late 2013 Lemsford Local History Group had a meeting to decide our topic for the 2014 Lemsford Fete display. 2014 was the anniversary of the start of WW1 and it was decided unanimously to take this monumental event as our theme for the Lemsford fete.
With the amount of research and information gathered we decided to build a website to help people understand how the Great war effected Lemsford Parish and changed a way of life. We hope you read our articles and get an understanding of the magnitude of suffering that occurred during this War. I also hope it will produce memories from families who had fathers, mothers, uncles, aunties, grand parents and great grandparents. All memories and images will be added to the site and hopefully produce a long lasting memorial for the men and women of Lemsford.
