In July 1919 at a public meeting in Hatfield a decision was taken to produce a book recording the men from the town who fought and died in the Great War, in order to give copies of the book to the families of the soldiers who were killed, as well as to those who survived the conflict.
As it states in the book: "A record of the names of those men who left the parish of Hatfield, Herts, to serve King and country, to fight for right against might in the Great War..... to commemorate the signing of peace and as a token of grateful remembrance of lives laid down and duty gallantly done this book was given by the people of the parish of Hatfield to the next of kin of those who have made the supreme sacrifice, and to those who returned to take their part in endeavouring to make this world a better place to live in"
The condition of the book is generally very good. The black cover boards have one or two minot scuffs but are clean and tidy, the spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
