Unclear why dates vary on local war memorials

War Memorial Redruth (Victoria Park)
Illogan Church Memorial

Having gathered so much material over the past week for Heart of Conflict - particularly about those who lost their lives - I had an interesting tour of local war memorials this afternoon with Bridging Arts volunteer Mike Matthews.
The dates of the war vary. 1914-18 on some - 1914-19 on others. Not sure why the different dates were chosen in different cases. Perhaps some soldiers died after the armistice, which signed in 1918. The ceasefire took place in 1919.
