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

About the Website


The Clayton and Whittle at War website purpose is to help people discover more about the men from our two villages who served in the armed force.


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 our country.


It started out as part my personal family history project looking for my ancestry.

I knew i would be related to Tom Peel, via my Grandmothers side.


I started to explore Tom Peels family history and found his military service and hence it gave me the idea to create this website for all the men on the memorial in 2014. 


There are 9 soldiers names on the Memorial \ Website who are related\connected to my family.


The wesite explores the men on the memorial and as of 2018 I  have added a page for those who returned from duty.


Enjoy discovering Clayton and Whittle at War.


All the Best
