New Book - King's Road for King and Country

Born out of a desire to commemorate the lives of the Great War fallen who had lived in King’s Road, St Albans, the road’s current residents suggested the idea of a lasting memorial. Then came the

It involved many hours of leafing through old newspapers and archives, obtaining advice and guidance from local and national bodies and so on. This book – a further memorial – is the result.  “This book… will be a las􀀝ng record of the human cost of war and the fifteen men who tragically lost their lives.”

Daisy Cooper, Member of Parliament for St Albans and Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats. “… a poignant tribute to a past community by their successors; a vibrant testimony to the strength of both.”

Sandy Walkington, County Councillor for St Albans (South). “A moving account, told with genuine pathos and heartfelt emotions…”
