A historical group has made an appeal for information about the heroic servicemen whose names line the village war memorial.

The St Clements Church Historical Group is looking to compile a book about the 35 soldiers who gave their lives in the First World War.

Their sacrifice is recognised on the war memorial in St Clements churchyard, Outwell, where their names take pride of place.

The group hopes to receive photographs of the servicemen, details of where they lived and worked and any other useful information.

The book will be exhibited in Outwell church to coincide with the Centenary of the First World War.

Tony Judd, of the historical group, said: “It is our intention to compile a book with photographs and any other information available to exhibit the book in Outwell Church to coincide with the centenary of the outbreak of the war.”
