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.


And as of 2018, more pages have been added.

Providing lots more information.




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


Thanks John Melling








I have lived in Clayton le Woods  for 38 years and have an ancestral connection going as far back as 1763 on my maturnal side.


I have always had a keen interest in genealogy, local, WW1 and WW2


Most of my spare time I spend researching war history which started originally whilst researching the war history of family members.


When I discovered TOM PEEL, a relative, on the war memorial at Whittle le Woods, it inspired and motivated me to research all the men on the memorial.


My traditional and modern approach to research, piles of paperwork, emails, books and personal visits continue to help my ongoing progress


If i am not spending time on the "Clayton and Whittle at War" website development I am usually 

'Gone Fishing' or preparing for a trip to the battlefields.
