EFFINGHAM AND WARTIME

At present the scope of this topic is restricted to the impact upon Effingham of the two world wars of the 20th century.

Our earliest wartime studies focussed on Effingham’s war memorials, taking inspiration from the excellent work undertaken by the Leatherhead & District Local History Society, in particular by Frank Haslam who had developed web pages analysing the memorials in many places within the district, including Effingham – these can be viewed at https://www.leatherheadlocalhistory.org.uk/war-memorials.htm.
