War Memorial

Map ref NC 72633 02015

Each man was somebody’s brother, somebody’s son, perhaps someone’s grandfather, a father or husband. We have been researching the stories of these men (and one woman) and will update the website shortly.

Can you help? Do you have a family story or photographs that we could include on our website? We would like to honour the lives of the lost in more detail.
