Hi all

Me and two others have set up this group on Facebook, with a website to follow shortly.

We aim to find through newspapers, word of mouth etc etc the War Memorials of Salford, we are hoping to record all men on these Memorials, and do some research on each man/woman.

We have a huge task ahead, but if you want to show us your support or if you want to help in anyway (photos, transcribing, research), or even taking on a particular are please get in touch through either the Group or by email.
