We are seeking any information about Coleshill's casualties from World War I. We would like to hear from anyone who knows anything about those commemorated on Coleshill's war memorial or those who fought and returned. We would also like to hear any stories about Coleshill and its community during the war years or see any photographs from that time.

You can email any information or photographs to or get in touch with us.
