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
