A school in Somerset has come up with a creative way to remember soldiers from the area who lost their lives in World War One.

Staff at King Alfred Academy have made cards for every man from Burnham-on-sea and Highbridge who fought.

They are now being displayed in the houses where the men lived before going to war.

People should know who lived in their old houses.

English teacher, Rebecca Dalziel, said she got the idea when she realised a soldier called Fred who was killed lived next door but one to where she lives, and her son is also called Fred.

"As I was calling to him as he came home from school I suddenly thought it was awful that her son never came home.

"It really struck home me that people should know who lived in their old houses in relation to the war."
