War memorials across East Sussex are to be recorded as part of a project to commemorate the First World War.

Residents are being invited to research war memorials in East and West Sussex and Brighton and Hove, as part of Recording Remembrance - a project launched by East Sussex and West Sussex County Councils’ Archaeology teams.

Members of the public, schools and history groups are encouraged to research details about war memorials and submit their findings via the East Sussex First World War website at www.eastsussexww1.org.uk/take-part

Recording Remembrance is part of a wider project to commemorate the First World War across the area and will run until 2018.

The information gathered about the war memorials will be added to local and national records about these significant and historic monuments as a permanent record for future generations.

There is also the option to research an individual included on a war memorial and link this information to the specific memorial record.

The First World War project website, which includes details of the memorials project, can be found at www.eastsussexww1.org.uk
