Alde Valley Suffolk Family History Group is appealing for information about the people of Leiston who lost their lives during the Second World War for a programme of events planned in Leiston to mark the 75th Anniversary of VE Day in May

The association has a list of names sourced mainly from the war memorial in St Margaret's Churchyard, Leiston which includes members of the Armed Forces and civilian casualties.
