The story behind each of the 122 men named on the Horley War Memorial and the search for other local men who died in the First World War. In this fascinating book, Doug Cox puts the lives of these men in context starting with what Horley was like in 1914 and why the country went to war. The impact of the conflict on the town is explained as we learn who these men were, where they lived and where and when they died in the service of their country. Finally, we learn about the legacy of the war on Horley and the story behind the struggle to raise funds and build Horley's War Memorial. In addition to highlighting the men on the main memorial, it will also identify the men named on other local memorials and sort out the confusion surrounding them. It will also look at the Men of Horley 1914-1918 who were thought to be missed off Horley War Memorial and never commemorated locally.
