Warnham and the Great War

During 2014 the world is marking 100 years since the outbreak of WW1, so the village has decided to commemorate its own involvement by producing a book, 'Warnham and the Great War'. You can read all about the people who lived here at the time; where they came from, what they did for a living, what daily village life was like, and how the home front contributed to the war effort. The main part of the book though tells the individual life stories of the 43 men and one woman who died whilst serving to protect those back at home.

Copies of the book are now available and cost from 10. If you would like to buy a copy then they can be purchased from Warnham Stores, Horsham Museum, Waterstones in Horsham or Newbridge Nursery, Broadbridge Heath. Alternatively please contact the Warnham Society and it can be posted to you for 15 including P&P. The book is being produced on a non profit-making basis by the Warnham Society, generously funded by the Parish Council.

Details for all the men and women who served that we have found so far can be found here. Please let us know if you believe any of the information to be wrong, or if you have anything to add.
