Year 2014 began raising four years of national awareness behind the sacrifice made by so many through the First World War. The Huthwaite-Online War Memorial Project is aimed at providing greater future remembrance. Three names still elude attempts to fully identify all those officially listed on the Huthwaite Cemetery Cenotaph, but other names perhaps equally worthy of Huthwaite recognition have been added
In further honour on centenary of their individual deaths, all are being given dated remembrances linked to a gallery page presenting updated research and or your family memorabilia. Can you relate anyone?
