A book of remembrance has been created to mark 100 years since the end of World War One.

The book gives a brief history of each person from the town who died during the conflict.

The book has been edited by town councillor Don Cameron with research carried out by Sandy Tebbutt and Valerie Payne.

Cllr Cameron said: “These stories of bereavement and despair happened all over Portishead, often several times in the same street and sometimes more than once in the same family.”

The book also gives a guide to memorials in Portishead for wars and other events.

The town council is planning to light a beacon on Battery Point and is considering creating a memorial stone.

To access the book of remembrance visit www.portishead.gov.uk and for more information email dcameron131@gmail.com
