Plan to commemorate Waterford soldiers

A new website has been launched to honour Waterford soldiers who died in World War One and Two. Among its aims is the creation of a memorial, to be ready before the 2014 anniversary of the start of the Great War.

The initiative is jointly organised with the Waterford County Museum and County Library Service. The latter already has an extensive database of Waterford's War Dead which is an excellent starting point for family historians. The new website will encourage more people to submit information about their relatives for inclusion on the database.

Their views on the proposed memorial will also be sought.
