For the benefit of those family historians and other researchers who do not yet own copies of the three WHO books still in print, here is a list of key names and selected topics.

Please email bobtrubs@indigogroup.co.uk for details of how to obtain copies of any of these books.


contents of Bringing Them Home by Ivor Perry

The chapters of Bringing Them Home provide biographies of the lives of those from Wymeswold (or associated with the village) who died in the First World War – see list below.

There is also a detailed account of the role of the YMCA in creating Memorial Halls nationwide, based on surviving correspondence with the then Vicar of Wymeswold.
