This book was produced to mark the unveiling of the Lampeter War Memorial on Friday, 24 October 1921. It contains photographs of all the men and women of Lampeter killed during the First World War as well as those who died later, as a result of the fighting. A short biographical note is included under each photograph.

The memorial was designed by Sir W. Goscombe John and in the book's introduction, the Honourary Secretary of the Lampeter War Memorial committee writes

'Let the Memorial for ever say that we desired to honour the brave who died for us'.
