The Cheshire County Memorial Project
Cheshire’s Memorial Roll is being compiled to honour all who fell in the Great War and World War Two. The aim is to firstly remember what they did for us and not let them disappear into history, and secondly to give each and every one of them a place where they are not simply a name on a list or a grave but a person who, before their lives were sadly taken while still young, lived and worked, had a family all of which they left behind them and go to a strange country and fight, so we can live ours today.
In conjunction with Leger Holidays
The Cheshire Project is organizing a tour in October 2019, we will be visiting the battlefields of the Somme, Arras, Passchendaele & Vimy Ridge and more.
We will be attending the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate Memorial, where two tour guests will be taking part in the ceremony which is held every night at 8pm.
To find out more about the tour please visit the WW1 Battlefield Tour page.
We are constantly researching each person and building a profile and whenever possible we are adding their picture, turning the name into a person. We also need your help to make this happen, if you have any information or a picture of a relative or anyone who was killed in the 1914-1918 and 1939-1945 wars who lived in Cheshire, we would be grateful if you could let us have the information or a copy of the picture.
