A local history group is to honour the memory of its war heroes on the anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.

Knott End Family History Society has prepared an exhibition due to open at Knott End Library on August 4.

The work has been spearheaded by Mrs Joan Morrison, of Preesall, who said: “One of our members started doing the names on the Preesall memorial at The Mount. There were about 21 names on it and I said it would be nice to commemorate them for an exhibition.”

Information from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission has been made into a roll of honour – the centrepiece of the exhibition.
