Cheshire County Memorial Project

The Cheshire County Memorial Project is creating a County Memorial Roll to honor all those who fell in the Great War 1914-18 and World War Two 1939-45. The project started on the 4th August 2014, marking 100 years since the start of the Great War. Each person is being researched, we aim is to ensure that they are never forgotten and will be more than just a name listed on a memorial.

This website came online on the 22nd May 2016, there are currently over 30,000 names to add, of those over 21,000 have been identified and nearly 5,000 have been researched, it will take some time to add all the information, please keeping checking for updates, they will also appear on the projects Facebook page.
