"They shall grow not old,
as we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun,
and in the morning
We will remember them."

WW1 ROLL OF HONOUR
During the First World War 236 men from Sudbury families joined the war effort and lost their lives, not always in action. Some died of disease, others in accidents. Just a few of their stories are told at the Sudbury Heritage Centre.
WW2 ROLL OF HONOUR
In the war years of 1939-1945 Sudbury men fought on land, in the air and at sea, in all the main theatres of war including the jungles of the Far East and the deserts of North Africa. The stories of some of the 60 who died in this conflict is told in a dedicted permanent display at The Heritage Centre.
AMERICANS IN SUDBURY
A deserted airfield lies just to the east of Sudbury. For some eighteen months in 1944-45 this was ‘home’ to some 3,000 young American GIs of the 486th Bomber Group. B17 and B24 heavy bombers took off on missions into Occupied Europe. The story of the 486th Group is told at the Heritage Centre - dedicated to the memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
