In 2014 our summer exhibition focused on Brixworth in 1914.

We have been researching those men of our village who volunteered for service at the start of the Great War and the men named on the war memorial who lost their lives.


Could you help us with our ongoing research?


Listed below are the names of the men we know were in the forces by December 1914. Are any of these your ancestors? Do you have any photographs or information about them that you would be willing to share with us. Please contact our archivist
