Doug Cox

In this fascinating book, Doug Cox puts the lives of these men in context starting with what Horley was like in 1914 and why the country went to war. The impact of the conflict on the town is explained as we learn who these men were, where they lived and where and when they died in the service of their country. Finally, we learn about the legacy of the war on Horley and the story behind the struggle to raise funds and build Horley’s War Memorial.

In addition to highlighting the men on the main memorial, it will also identify the men named on other local memorials and sort out the confusion surrounding them, Finally it will look at the Men of Horley 1914-1918 who were thought to be missed off Horley War Memorial and never commemorated locally.

The book has been produced in association with Horley Local History Society which has been in existence for over 50 years. The Society maintains a large collection of maps, local census and parish records, wills, family trees and photographs all of which are accessible to members and local residents for study and research.
