Drawing on this poignant moment in national history, Somerset Remembers will explore the impact and long-term legacy of the conflict on the county. The project is themed around ‘remembering’ and will look at the many ways in which Somerset people and communities have remembered the Great War.

Connecting People

At the heart of Somerset Remembers is an ambition to connect people and organisations today with the First World War, providing you with the opportunity to commemorate and learn about the war that changed Somerset forever.

Somerset Remembers will focus on 1914-1918 but will also explore how the First World War shaped the lives of Somerset people in the years after the war. The project will also look at ways in which the conflict is understood, represented and remembered today.
