Lest We Forget

"It was a weird process, 100 years on, researching those from Spencer who went to fight in World War 1 and never returned. Not only did I know nothing of them, I came to realise that no one else does either. For as young men, they were generally too young to be married or if they were, not long enough to have had children. They had no direct descendants and so for today’s generation of Spencer members, at best they would be great great uncles, likely lost already in family history. But they lived in the same houses and the same streets as we do today and they played cricket on the same field." - Steve Kersley

As we remember all of those who fought in World War I 100 years ago, we bring you some history from Spencer and remember the 79 members who joined up to fight. Please take a moment to read more about them. Find the document here.
