 Naomi Klein, who has researched the lives of local men killed in the First World War, explores the way families were told of the deaths of their loved ones and how this often started a painful search for more information. She uses stories from Stockwell and other war memorials.

Naomi Klein is the author of These were Our Sons, a book about the 574 men listed on Stockwell War Memorial, and is chairman of Friends of Stockwell War Memorial.

  1. Hello just looking at your web site my family around late 1800 and 1900 my family were named Eley/Ely spelt two different ways they all lived in South Lambeth on Paradise Road and all around the Larkhall Lane Estate many of their children went to Larkhall Lane School. Do you know anything about Ely cottages near Albert Square. Also Iam looking for Albert Buildings also in Lambert but I don’t know where. I have been to South Lambeth and Stockwell area many times lovely area.

    Thank you
