“If you think, have a kindly thought, If you speak, speak generously, Of those who as heroes fought And died to keep you free”

Thomas Hardy
Men & Memorials of Dudley

Welcome to Men & Memorials of Dudley by The Black Country Society

Set up by the Black Country Society. Our aim is to highlight local men who died in the Great War and how they have been commemorated on war memorials. Its scope covers the whole of the present Dudley Municipal Borough and therefore includes the places which have come within its bounds since 1914.

There are over fifty memorials and the number of names exceeds three thousand. Research on the names has been extensive but inevitably errors and omissions occur. We would like to hear about them concentrated on life and work before 1914, involvement in military campaigns and where each man is buried or commemorated.
