A Historical Association & University of Plymouth History department talk.

In this fascinating talk Rebecca Smith, will give us an insight into the work and history of the commission since its inception in 1917.

It has a large public archive and aims to connect with local people and places, particularly reconnecting neighbourhoods with the First World War and Second World War stories held within their local cemeteries...
