The Carved in Stone Project
Produced by Merton Library and Heritage Service, the Carved in Stone offers unprecedented access to a unique collection of material charting the history of Merton during the First World War. This includes the amazing life stories of local combatants and war workers, whose courage, determination and sacrifice has helped to shape the borough as we know it today.
This project has been made possible thanks to a dedicated team of volunteers, with further assistance from local museums, societies, schools and community groups.
