A project is underway to honour forgotten war heroes from Wilberfoss.

The parish council, along with the help of Wilberfoss resident, Sue Skelton, is aiming to add the names of several men who were either born or lived in the village before they died in World War One to the village war memorial on Main Street.

Mrs Skelton, 67, who is leading the project, carried out some research recently using the Imperial War Museums website and discovered the names of the men who do not feature on the memorial’s list of people who died during World War One.
