St Peter's School
Remembering the dead
Our aim for this website is to commemorate former pupils and members of staff of St Peter’s School who served during the First World War and lost their lives in doing so.
We hope that, in addition to being a beneficial resource in school, the information will be made more widely available to support research across the world. Should you have further information or photographs that you wish to share about the people commemorated here, please contact our volunteer Archivist Ian Lancaster at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that Ian only works part-time. If your enquiry is urgent please contact Philippa Dunford-Jeffs at email@example.com.
We are grateful to John Armstrong, our IT Systems Manager, for extensive research undertaken prior to this project; Avril Pedley and John V Mitchell, our previous Archivists; Angela Sanderson and many others who have contributed to our records.
