Whitchurch Memorial

 

I first started visiting the Battlefields, Cemeteries and Memorials of the Western Front some fifteen years ago. Three years ago I decided to research the names on the War Memorial in Station Road, that’s all they are names, carved in stone, or written on a Roll of Honour

The Memorial was granted grade two listed status in November 2017

Every November we gather around the Memorial to remember them, but who were they? A list of names about whom little or nothing is known, behind every name is a person. For some of the men a great deal of information is available, for some very little, and for others, nothing!

I have spent hours researching each individual and have only included in this book facts that I can verify from records I have sourced, these include; National Archives, Commonwealth War Graves Commission and Local Newspapers

This is an ongoing project, Terry’s 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.
