Eccleshall War Memorial
(click for the Dedication)

Welcome to the Eccleshall Great War Project.

This Eccleshall Historical Society project is to commemorate the centenary of the Great War (1914-1918 (1919)) by recording as much information about the personal, family and military history of the 46 names on the War Memorial in Holy Trinity Churchyard. This includies any known circumstances of their death and their resting place or commemoration. Not all the names were Ecclehall Parish residents and the original records regarding the memorial were lost many years ago.

A copy of the Commemorative Book containing the research completed for the Eccleshall Festival in June 2014 is available, free for download. It does not include any added research since then.
