DOZENS of readers have passed on information to help piece together the lives of the men commemorated on Nailsworth's war memorial.

To mark next year's centenary of the start of the First World War, volunteers from the Nailsworth Archives group are collating information on each of the 78 men who died in the conflict.

After appealing for information and photographs last week they have already had a great response in phone calls and emails.

If you have information on any of the men named on the memorial contact Mike on 01453 832739 or email nailswortharchive@yahoo.co.uk

You can also visit the Nailsworth Archive group on Mondays and Fridays from 10am to 12pm on the first floor of the town hall.
