August 4th, 2014 was the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of WW1
The ‘Burpham Will Remember Them’ community project team is seeking to remember and honour the 18 souls named on the Burpham War Memorial, who made the ultimate sacrifice, giving their lives in the defence of democracy and freedom in the belief that they were making the world a better place.
We are seeking to make all of us living today be more aware of their ultimate sacrifice, to keep their memory alive, to trace existing family and friends of these men and any other men from Burpham and Jacobs Well who fought in the war, to collect photographs, stories and details of service, to complete the history of these local men and the way life was in the Burpham and Jacobs Well Community in the early part of the 20th Century.
To ensure their sacrifice is never forgotten.
On August 2nd and 3rd we invited all to join with us when we held special commemorative events in their honour. See on left.
