Commemorating the Great War
2014 will mark 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War.
To commemorate the centenary of the Great War an e-book has been produced entitled “If you shed a tear”. This is compiled from the memorial books of a dozen coastal parishes on the North Essex coast between the rivers Colne and Blackwater, including Tollesbury. It contains over 200 profiles of men associated with these villages killed in that war.
