First World War Project


Members of Sandiacre Heritage Group have researched the lives of the 69 men who fell in the First World War and whose names appear on Sandiacre's War Memorials in Saint Giles' Church and the Memorial Institute on Doncaster Avenue.

Click here to see the results of our research so far.

A full list of the names we have researched appears below.  The names listed on the memorials show only surname and initial.  We now know that some of these are incorrect.  

If you, or anyone you know, had any relatives who lived in Sandiacre and served in the First World War we would like to hear from you, especially if you can add to the information we have already found.

If you are able to help in any way, or need more information, please contact Sheila Hickingbotham on 0115 939 8057.  Alternatively, you can email Sandiacre Heritage Group on
