“We are currently seeking any information, stories, photos and family memories about Fetcham during the period 1911 – 1919. We hope to build a picture of what the village was like for its inhabitants during the period of World War 1, not just the men who served and those who did not return, but of life for the wives and children who were left behind. We are also researching those who worked as hospital orderlies both male and female, and any information on the Red House Military Hospital in Leatherhead. We are also interested in the local businesses and shops, farms and estates which might have been affected. Please contact us if you have anything that would like to contribute. It would be very much appreciated.”
