16:15 - 17:00

Was your ancestor in Surrey during the Great War? Did they serve in a Surrey regiment or are they recorded on a Surrey memorial? This talk will explore the wide range of Great War resources available at Surrey History Centre. It will also provide an overview of how Surrey was affected by the conflict and the impact the county had on the wider war effort. The talk will also show how the county is remembering the men and women who were caught up in the war, both at the Front and at home.

For the past year a small team, including Phil Cooper, has been working on the development of a Great War Centenary project. The aim is to bring together existing and new research to tell Surrey's story and to link archives, museum collections and personal stories with the county's archaeology. Phil has worked at Surrey History Centre since 2009 and has an MA in History.
