War Memorials World War 1
A web site that attempts to tell the stories of all those named on the War Memorials in Flintshire North Wales UK.
These stories are told in the first instance, through all the records that we have been able to research that are in the public domain. These include census returns, the records of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, newspaper reports - especially 'The County Herald', Flintshire's own unique Roll of Honour kept at the County Archive Office in Hawarden and where they exist, miltary service records.
This is a work in progress and it will take some time to complete, if indeed it can ever be finished. We hope to add to these official accounts, family memorabilia- photographs, letters, cards and additional details provided by family members. If you would like to celebrate your relative's life by including such items then please make contact through our 'Contact Us' page. (Check out our sister website www.northopwm.com to see how many families have generously provided us with memorabilia to post on that site).
Our aim is to create a virtual memorial for the 21st century of those from Flintshire who died in WW1. These were young men who had lived and attended our local schools, walked the streets of our villages and towns, worked in the fields and the industries of Flintshire. Their names on the stones of remembrance remind us that they existed. With the wonder of technology we can now record details of those lives and the families they left behind.
