Lower Heath School Memorial


The memorial is in Lower Heath School, which is on the B5065 in Lower Heath, Prees, Shropshire. The Memorial was donated anonymously in 1919, the donor expressing the wish ‘that it should be placed in a prominent position, as a continual reminder to the present and future scholars of the part played by the old boys from 1914-1918’. The memorial was initially placed in Fauls Church and was returned at a later date to the school.

This is an ongoing project, information will be added to the website over the coming weeks and months. It is hoped that the people of Whitchurch, Shropshire and beyond will get involved and provide additional information and images to each entry on the memorials.

  1. Charles Whitfield was my great uncle. The other Whitfield was his brother but it says F Whitfield when it should say H Whitfield. He was called Harry but his full name was Cecil Harry. He died 22.06.1915 at Ieper.

    • Hi Karen; many thanks for confirming this. Obviously we cannot arrange for the memorial to be changed but we will update our Great War History Hub to identify the F Whitfield as Cecil Henry Whitfield, brother of Charles Whitfield. Thank you again
