Sileby At War

This project is a memorial for the men and women of Sileby (including Seagrave & Cossington) that served in wars up to and including World War II. Other war related information is also collected here.

Thanks go to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission for their excellent website and permission to use their certificates that helped me get the project off to a flying start. For a sobering thought, try searching for your surname e.g. for mine (Rose) there are nearly 1200 listed!
