World War Memorials

World War Memorials
We offer a specialised document management archiving and database solution for schools who wish to build a lasting dedication to alumni who fought and participated in World War I and World War II.

SDS Education can archive all manner of materials, including complete year books, journals, photographs, registers, military and community records, letters, Rolls of Honour, diaries, memorabilia, ephemera, OTC/CCF Records, news cuttings, personal memoirs, and even film and Magic Lantern slides.

From this source material, SDS can produce either a basic package, which contains all the scanned documentation, indexed, and searchable via a bespoke database; or a more advanced online solution with varying degrees of visitor interactivity (including calendars, featured articles, blog and comments areas).

Both packages include bespoke design and build of an online portal, and costs include the first 1,000 items (a photograph, for example, constitutes one item). Additional items can be added as an when required for a nominal fee.
