Cobham Remembers - Introduction
Cobham Heritage is an active participant in the "Cobham Remembers" project which is part of the Surrey in the Great War: A Country Remembers project run by the Surrey History Centre.
Surrey in the Great War: A County Remembers is a four year project run by Surrey Heritage and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, which aims to discover how the 1914-1918 conflict affected those left behind in the county and on the Home Front. The project team is on the look-out for stories about people and places. You can find out more about the Surrey wide project at their website: www.surreyinthegreatwar.org.uk
Cobham Heritage is keen to collect stories and photos about the people and places in the Cobham and surrounding area and will contribute this to the main Surrey project.
This website contains some of the information collected so far (see right hand menu) and includes details of those who lived in and around Cobham and lost their lives in the first world war. This is an ongoing project and more details will appear over time.
Although the Cobham Remembers project is focused on the first world war we are also interested in information and photographs about the second world war.
The Cobham Conservation and Heritage Trust was the instigator for adding the memorial plaque at the Tilt in 2009 and have more recently been working with Elmbridge Borough Council to rejuvenate the declining avenue of cherry trees on the Tilt.
