Soldier Records

As part of a Heritage Lottery Funded WW1 project titled "Bury Remembers the First World War" we have been able to extract a huge amount of information from the five local newspapers that were in print at the time. This information includes local soldiers’ photographs and obituaries as well as thousands of local articles extracted from this amazing resource. We are still in the process of indexing all the extracted data but all of the soldiers’ photographs and obituaries have been indexed and are searchable. Click "Map View" to see where the soldiers lived. 


NB. Only soldiers that we have address information for will be present on this map. Some addresses from the period of WW1 no longer exist and therefore in these cases we have used general locality (if known).
