The relatives of men from Thorpe Market who died in the First World War are being traced for a special remembrance service.
The village's church will have a Remembrance Sunday service at 10.30am on November 11, paying special tribute to the 14 young men from the parish who died in the war.
The church has so far traced relatives of 10 of the men, and hopes to make contact with the others.
A spokesman said: 'If you are a relative, or have information about any of those who died please do contact us.
'We are still seeking information about Cecil Burdett. He may have a Colby connection and the name Bates in his family.'

The spokesman said: 'We are preparing family trees, details of the homes they left behind and their military records, their regimental music.'
