A book of remembrance has been created to honour fallen soldiers from a south Norfolk village.
The three-year research project undertaken by Forncett History Group into the names on the two war memorials culminated on Remembrance Sunday with the dedication of the book, which contains biographical details of each man.
Relatives of the soldiers who were traced during research attended Sunday's service.
The book includes stories on soldiers such as Private Jesse Robert Barrett, who died aged 25 in December 1917.
Born in Tibenham, Private Barrett told his father that he did not want to return to serving on the front line in France - but his father insisted he had no choice.
