Raising money for the Poppy Appeal, a history of the Broadway War Memorial and the 48 men commemorated on the war memorial who lost their lives in the First World War has now been published.
In the spring of 1911, the population of Broadway, measured by the 1911 census was 1,793. Three years later, on 4th August 1914, Great Britain declared war on Germany and by the end of September 1914, 13 men from Broadway had enlisted to fight for their country. By 1918 over 300 men from the village were serving across Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
