First World War 1914-1918

As the centenary of the start of the First World War approached, it seemed appropriate to remember those who lived in, or were associated with Duxford and whose names are inscribed on the War Memorial Cross, on the centenary of their deaths.  Each one of those named were people with family and friends in the village.  The families may be long gone, but each Remembrance day the names are read out. 

When you click on the links in the names above, you can find a little more information about their personal stories.  Please check back from time to time, as information is gradually being added.
