Over the five years of the project the aim is to build a record of the impact of the First World War on families, the life of the town and, of course, the story of those who went to war, and of the many who did not return. The project will include the civil parish of Dawlish, so that names of those recorded on memorials at Cofton and Holcombe are included as well as those who are buried in the town cemetery, but may not be found a place on the Dawlish War Memorial.

This means many biographies will only be fully completed as the project progresses.

To view the list of names on the Dawlish, Cofton or Holcombe war memorials search by different local war memorials РAll, Cofton, Dawlish and Holcombe.
