11th November this year marks the 90th anniversary of the end of the First world War. As you will see at the exhibition, the end of war did not mean the end of the suffering and pain of the local people that lost fathers, sons, husbands and brothers. Approximately 500 men from Chingford and 2000 from Walthamstow gave their lives in this conflict of unprecedented scale and horror.

Other projects in development at present are the Leyton & Leytonstone, Loughton & Manor Park War memorial Projects. If you have any additional information regarding any of the Great War Casualties please contact us so that we can add the information or photograph onto each of their pages.
