A map of World War I memorials and the names of fallen soldiers from The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead are to be listed on an interactive website.

The BBC reports that the Royal Borough is looking for volunteers to research the stories of the war dead.

Symbols will mark the location of the 186 memorials, commemorating both allied and enemy casualties, with additional information including photographs and letters.

The borough also wants to identify lost memorials in towns and villages and hopes to reveal the stories of a whole range of local people involved in the war, such as factory workers and volunteer nurses.
