Hi everyone, I don't suppose anyone remembers if there was a memorial plaque for those who fell in WWI inside the church do they?

Thanks,
Kirsty

I lived at St Andrews Church in the 60s, my Dad was the verger and my Mum the caretaker. We lived in the grounds in a big house with another couple in the other half. There was not a graveyard here. My brother had loads of photos of the church, sadly he passed away in 2009 and I don't know where the photos are as he lived in Australia.

I'm not sure about your gruesome question but I wonder if the square house you remember was the vicarage which was on Green Lane. I think it dated back to Victorian times and it was set back from the road with railings at the front. When were you (and your nephew) christened?
There was a house in the grounds, we lived there when I was a child. My Dad wilf was the verger and my Mum, Clare was the caretaker.There was no graveyard there.
