Welcome Warminster Gallery Museum History Society The Great War What's on? Contact Us

Every month since August 2014, members of Warminster History Society have produced a display screen which has been mounted in Warminster Public Library.  The aim of the display is to honour all local men who lost their lives in the First World War, with a monthly Roll of Honour.  


The display also records what was happening at home, as well as what was happening at the front as war progressed.


On a table in front of the display screen is a Book of Remembrance.  All the known victims from Warminster and the surrounding villages are featured in this book and there is a short biographical picture of each of them.


There were many more casualties than are recorded on town and village memorials.  The present number in the Book of Remembrance exceeds 500, but it is certain that there were even more.  The History Society has already received a great deal of information from local people who have been able to supply names of victims and to give background information for inclusion in the Book of Remembrance, but this is an ongoing project and Society members are always ready to honour all local casualties who were not previously known to them.
