Remembering Herne Hill 1914 - 18

Welcome to the Herne Hill memorial website. This volunteer-led project aims to tell the story of all those from Herne Hill, South London, who served and died in the First World War. The database, which contains over 550 records, was compiled and edited by the Herne Hill Society with help from the students of the Charter School, North Dulwich, and other local people.

This project is Heritage Lottery funded, thanks to money raised by National Lottery players.
