Somerset Remembers Community Archive

When the Somerset Remembers project formally ends on 31 March the Somerset Remembers Community Archive will remain the place to share your stories and research on the First World War in Somerset.

We are looking for letters, diaries, photographs and stories of the county during the conflict, both relating to those serving abroad, but also to the roles and experiences of those who remained at home.

Did a relative serve with the Somerset Light Infantry? Did an ancestor leave school to work in a war time industry or to help with the production of food? Is there a Red Cross nurse in the family? Or have you been researching your village to mark the centenary? If so we want to hear from you.

Once the stories are uploaded to the Community Archive they will become a research resource for anyone interested in Somerset for the war years, and will help to make a complete picture of the county’s war effort.

The archive will also stand as a monument to the men, women and children of Somerset who contributed to the nation’s cause and to mark the legacy the war has had on today’s communities.
