PETERBOROUGH WAR MEMORIAL

Peterborough City & See Memorial at Peterborough Cathedral

Welcome to the Peterborough War Memorial                     

Below is a brief description of some of the page subjects which can be found on this site.

World War I: This is the Peterborough War Memorial, First World War Roll of Honour. From here you can access Army, Airforce and Navy casualties. You will also find a link to a page on which is recorded a number of letters received by the families of some of the casualties describing the circumstances of their deaths. There is also a section listing the men from Peterborough who fought, and in some cases died, in 1914.
 
World War II: This is the Peterborough War Memorial, Second World War Roll of Honour. From here you can access Army, Airforce, Navy and civilian casualties.

Eye War Memorial: Eye was a small village situated just outside Peterborough during the First World War. However, over the years Peterborough has grown and stretched out towards Eye, enveloping it and making it part of the city. For this reason I thought it only right to add it to the Peterborough War Memorial.

Links: This is a short list of websites that I have found useful in the past.

PETERBOROUGH AT WAR 1914-1918

Peterborough At War 1914-1918

I have now written and published this book to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. It tells the complete story of Peterborough during World War One, both on the Home Front and the Battle Front.

The book includes 100 photographs of casualties, including the only woman from the city to be killed, four indexes and a completely updated Roll of Honour. A large paperback comprising of 514 pages, this book is a fascinating record of a city at war and would make an excellent gift.

Priced at 15.00, there is free delivery to addresses in the Peterborough area. Contact me for payment and postage details. EMAIL

PETERBOROUGH AT WAR 1939-1945

Peterborough At War 1939-1945

The book includes 45 photographs of casualties, four indexes and a completely updated Roll of Honour. A large paperback comprising of 465 pages, this book is a fascinating record of a city at war and would make an excellent gift.

WE NEED MORE PHOTOGRAPHS

John Lockwood Armstrong

We need more photographs of servicemen such as John Lockwood Armstrong left, to add to this web site. Information is important, but it is not fully complete without a picture of the man.

If anyone has a picture of any man on this site we would love to add it to the listing. We can copy old photographs and return them, but an emailed image is best.

Please help to put faces to names by sending images to me, David Gray, via this EMAIL link, or contact me the same way if you have any other information.


This web site is very pleased to announce that for the first time since the end of the First World War, Peterborough now has a war memorial worthy of the men from the city who died during that conflict and which records all of their names and details. Something that this web site has long been asking for.
