In 1922 the names of over 500 local men who perished in the First World War were carved into the panels of Stockwell War Memorial in South London. Who were they? These biographies show that they were jack-the-lads, fraudsters and underage messenger boys as well as seasoned soldiers, steady family men and hardworking artisans. They were bank clerks, printers, prison officers, railwaymen, barmen and plumbers. Christian and Jew. Volunteer and transcript. Young and old. Brothers, fathers, sons. Their stories and their secrets, told through family letters, personal accounts and official records are told here for the first time. 

This e-book updates the print version published in 2010 and includes many additional images of the men, as well as sections on other First World War memorials in the local area.
