Blackmore: War Memorial Project (10)

Thirty seven new pages have been added to the main website which will, in due course, contain details of individual men who gave their lives in the First World War. 31 pages are those who have clear Blackmore connections. A further three each are associated with High Ongar and Highwood. The Blackmore World War One page ( is being changed to create an index to accommodate the new pages. The list of those recorded on Blackmore’s War Memorial who returned from War has been updated ( In addition the Highwood War Memorial has been transcribed ( and a photograph of the High Ongar War Memorial with those names commemorated added (

Although the War Memorial does not record any names of those from the Second World War, a webpage has been created and updated relating to this conflict ( Sixty five years after the close of WW2 we remember those who died and those who served too.

Finally a new webpage has been created with photographs relating to Blackmore and the First World War. Go to the ‘Great War Gallery’ page ( We are on the lookout for more photographs. Do send them in with your stories.
