Bishop's Stortford in the First World War

by Sarah Turner | 15 May 2014
Category: British History
Synopsis
Bishop's Stortford was a small town in the Edwardian period. However, over 1,500 men and women from the town were on active service at some point during the First World War. Stortford had a munitions factory, many land girls, a VAD hospital, a POW camp and a very active Volunteer Corps. It also billeted over 20,000 troops, including at one point Albert Ball, flying ace. There are 208 names on the war memorial (but this is not the complete list of those who died). For every name on the memorial there are dozens who were affected by their lives and deaths. This book will bring the town of Bishop's Stortford and the experiences of its residents during the First World War to life. It shows people with real lives, people who might have shared the same interests, schools and churches, as well as walking the same streets, working in the same buildings and shopping in the same shops, as people in Bishop's Stortford today.
