Legacy Projects along The Ridge for the Armistice Centenary

A series of remembrance and legacy projects will take place across The Sandstone Ridge this November, as the nation commemorates the Armistice Centenary.

As a taster, we publish a photograph of the newly positioned Commonwealth War Graves Commission signage which has been installed by Bolesworth Estate at All Saints Church, Harthill.

Both St John the Divine Church in Burwardsley and St Alban's Church in Tattenhall will have identical signage erected in advance of the Remembrance Weekend.

This national project is part of a programme to raise awareness that there are, in fact, many Commonwealth War Graves sited in local Churchyards, including several along The Sandstone Ridge.

Families had several options available to them at the end of The Great War — they could remember their relatives who died in conflict on a local War Memorial, on a family grave, on an official Commonwealth War Graves Headstone erected in a local Churchyard and, in line with government initiatives, as close to where they died as was possible. Some families chose all options.

We will publish more information as we approach 11 November.
