Historians who are commemorating Elmton-with-Creswell’s role in the First World War with the publication of a new book are appealing for information about four mystery soldiers.

Joint secretaries Pam Finch and Enid Hibbert, of the Elmton-with-Creswell Local History Group, have been compiling the book which includes the village’s fallen heroes who lost their lives during the Great War from 1914 to 1918.

Pam said: “There are 94 men on our village war memorial and we’ve managed to get background on all of them apart from four names which have left us stumped. We can’t find any ties to the area but we understand a lot of men who went to war worked at Creswell Colliery or on the railway and they may have come from elsewhere and lodged in Creswell.”
