Effingham in Wartime

At present the scope of this project is restricted to the impact upon Effingham of the two world wars of the 20th century.

Our quest to discover more about those named on Effingham's various war memorials was originally inspired by the earlier work on this subject by the Leatherhead & District Local History Society, in particular by Frank Haslam who has developed web pages analysing the memorials in many places within the district, including Effingham – these can be viewed at https://www.leatherheadlocalhistory.org.uk/war-memorials.htm.


World War I : 1914-1918

World War II : 1939-1945


Effingham Local History Group would be pleased to receive any further information about the topics above and to hear of any surviving photographs relating to them.
