Remembering the fallen from World War I

I was very touched to receive a copy St Laurence's booklet on Frodsham's fallen from World War I this morning and have just spent a very reflective half hour reading it.  

The booklet provides interesting family details and a link to our recent Frodsham forebears.

What struck me was the familiarity of the names, the ordinary nature of their  jobs and recognising the addresses where they lived.  

We are all far closer to this conflict and its devastating consequences they we perhaps realise.
