Above is a picture of George Williams, one of the men who returned.

 

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.

Including the Returned from Duty page.

 

Discovering those who were demobolized, injured and too young to serve. 

 

 

 

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

 

Thanks John Melling
