Rosie Cooper, MP for West Lancashire, is urging residents of all ages to visit their local Commonwealth war graves to gain a greater understanding of the scale and magnitude of the Great War.

The call follows a national initiative spearheaded by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the All-Party Parliamentary War Heritage Group and the In From The Cold Project, which maps war graves in each constituency.

Ms Cooper said: “The Centenary of the outbreak of the First World War is a time for reflection and commemoration.”
