The First World War claimed the lives of 2,500 Croydon men on active service between 28th July 1914 and 11th November 1918.

The 100th anniversary of the world's first truly global conflict is commemorated in this exhibition by students from St Joseph's College.

The students worked with museum staff and volunteers to explore the experiences of Croydon citizens during the war and to help bring their stories to light.
