World War I & World War II

Frome, like every other town in England, played its part in both World Wars. Many men from Frome were in the war and some never returned.

There are remembrance plaques in the Memorial Theatre commemorating those who died in the conflicts.

Brian Dyer has carried out extensive researching on these themes and a copy of his illustrated detailed findings is stored in the Museum.

We also have many photographs and books available for reference which give an insight of life in Frome before, during and after each period of war.
