      Sorry for ther delay but I have been away.

      Tell me what you want specifically and I will send them if you contact my email directly.
      The website is funded by The National Lottery so there can’t be any commercial element to it, so the photographs there are protected somehow (not sure how, though) As they were taken by me I have no objection to you have copies. Are you researching something specific or do you have a particular interest in a topic?

  1. On behalf of the Hampshire Constabulary History Society, I am researching the history of men of the Hampshire Constabulary who lost their lives during the two world wars. One of the names I am researching is Ernest Reginald Jackson, who was born in Burnham and appears on your website. I would be grateful if you could contact me to discuss Ernest, as I hope to be able to exchange some information about his service.

  2. Many thanks for your project. Would have never found Arthur Edward Sweet death with out it.
    Have researched William Sweet Chimney Sweep Family from Burnham on Sea, almost complete genealogy.
    Can be found on Ancestry.
    Do you know where a copy of the obituary can be found?

  3. Greetings from Ashtead, Surrey,
    4th University and Public Schools Battalion/21st Royal Fusiliers had been billeted on our village in 1914. They were assigned to La Bassee canal, 21/11/1915 but disbanded 1/3/1916. Private P/S 4026 Charles Ashton Cordingley was then assigned for officer training to No. 3 Officer Cadet Battalion at Oxford University. His death came to be registered at Axbridge, 9/191, and appears in the CWGC list.

    His parents were John Cordingley (1864 -1936) and Ellen Ashton (1865 – 1925).

    All good wishes, Brian

  4. I came across your site whilst researching soldiers from Berrow who are remembered on the brass plaque inside St Mmary’s Church, Berrow.
    I can tell you that 2 soldiers, who are said to have no memorial mention, are indeed inscribed on this plaque. They are: Pte. Sidney John Harris and Sgt. Fred Norman Reg. No. 10446. Also on Berrow Church plaque are: Pte 14278 HG Yard(e) and Pte 28742 Alfred John Rawlings
