The  1914 - 1919  and  1939 - 1945 sections have been put into more of an alphabetical order and panel by panel.


All 109 names are on for the WW1 and 23 names on the WW2 section.


I am adding names and any information i can find about the men from both WW1 and WW2 on the memorial.


In the Gallery there are  pictures of  their CWGC gravestones, family graves and more. 


Thanks John Melling






Clayton & Whittle at War
Clayton & Whittle at War 

Welcome to the Clayton and Whittle at War website


In 1914 - 1919 and again in 1939 - 1945 the men of our closely knit villages of Clayton le Woods and Whittle le Woods would pay the ultimate price for protecting their country.


We often walk past the memorial, even visiting on Rememberance Day



100 years later the names on the stone are still there, and in recent times a few more names have been added.


We see names of calico printers and weavers from our local mills,

shopkeepers, a police constable and many more trades


Some died of accidents, the spanish flu on their return home , gallantly on the battlefield or as a prisoner of war.



Along side those who fell during WW1 are the names of the soldiers which would also be claimed during WW2.


I have now expanded the website to include a 1939-1945  section.


Thankyou for visiting the website and please feel free to comment.


If posible are you able to contribute pictures and information on these names.


Thank you 


John Melling
