A project on the history of Cleator Moor men killed in the First World War will culminate with a showcase of its work next week.

Throughout 2018, the 'Cleator Moor WWI project' has been researching local men who died in the conflict.

The aim was to produce a lasting and relevant record for the community of Cleator Moor.

As the project draws to a close, an open night will be held, which members of the public are invited to attend.

Project members will be there to discuss what they have found and there will be a number of short presentations throughout the evening.

Dave Farrell, project leader, said: "We have come up with a definitive list of almost 250 men from Cleator Moor who died in World War One.

"We have found out infinite amounts of biographical information on them but much more than that we have found out some interesting and poignant stories.

"All this information is now available to share with the people of Cleator Moor. This event is a summary of what we have found. It will be great to have as many people there as possible."

The open night will take place at the project office on Market Square, Cleator Moor on Thursday, between 6.30pm and 9pm.
