A site dedicated to those men of Bartley Green who lost their lives in both World Wars.
Who I am and what I do:
History of the Memorial
This site was set up in 2014, the year that marked the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War.
The community of Bartley Green has been coming together for a number of years to remember the fallen of both World Wars. As time has moved on and personal memories fade then interest in these names that speak out to us from stone edifices takes hold. Using research and personal accounts from those related to the fallen, pictures emerge of these men and they cease to become a list of names but real people who lived and were lived in places we know so well.
This site is dedicated to telling their stories and keeping their names alive.
