By remembering and honouring the ten Yaxham soldiers who gave their lives in the World War 1, I would like to think that they are not just names on a memorial.
My research is by no means complete, and sadly I have been unable to supply much in the way of personal details, photos etc. of the fallen. From censuses, war diaries and databases I have been able to record mostly where they lived before the war, details of their service, when and where they died and the foreign memorials that bear their names.
In this way at least, I hope their memory will live on more vividly.
