World War 1 Records

We are compiling an extensive set of records about local people who actively participated in the First World War – at that time, known as ‘The Great War’.

In addition to Wreningham residents, there were others who resided elsewhere but had family connections with Wreningham and we have included information about many of those, too. A transcribed summary of each of these is provided here.

There was also a General Election at the end of the war and official records from the time included Wreningham residents which provided each of their peace-time postal addresses as well as their war-time units and service numbers. A transcribed summary of these ‘Absent Voters’ details are provided here.

The Commemoration page provides details of the fallen in both World Wars and can be found here.

The above information should be regarded as work in progress. We will add further details in due course.
