Cleave's 1915 Directory

The 1915 Directory is important as it reflects the location
and names of families at the outbreak of World War I -
Most of the data would have been collected in 1914.
Many family members who often saw it as an opportunity

and the Somme.  The names of those who died can be
here. An alphabetical lisitng of names can be
