Soldiers of Shepshed Remembered 1914-1919
Soldiers of Shepshed includes a section on the various memorials erected in the town to honour the dead, and the reader will also hear something of life on the home front, from the tragedies incurred by the influenza pandemic of 1918-19, to the euphoria that greeted the signing of the Armistice and the Great Victory Parade held in Shepshed in July 1919.

While the book contains a lot of useful information, my copy came with printing issues. All the photographs in the side columns had vertical lines which pretty much ruined the picture, including those of my ancestors that happened to be there.
The publishers weren't much help and just returned my money and told me to keep the book, which I had got as a gift. I also emailed the printers and they appears to have declined to respond to my email.
If you're getting the book for information and texts then this is a good resource, if you're going to rely on it to provide good quality photographs, then you may be left more than happy.
Considering the cost of the book was reasonable but the $10 shipping is a bit extortionate. I paid it because I thought the book was being shipped from the UK, not from California to Texas.
Excellent piece of writing.
My Great Grandad is pictured with his family in this book on page 3.
I hadn't seen a picture of him before. Was great to see him with my Gran when she was small.
