The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire

A 'Roll of Honour' for the Village of Burwardsley

We are all humbled when a group of individuals in a community work hard to make a vision become reality.

In the context of 'Remembrance' and with 2016 being the centenary anniversary of 'The Battle of the Somme', the vision is to erect a permanent Roll of Honour dedicated to the men of Burwardsley who died in The Great War and in WWII.

Unlike Tattenhall, the hamlet of Burwardsley has no Roll of Honour and no War Memorial.

Yet in this tiny hamlet, at least 11 men lost their lives in 1914-1918 and 1 to the conflict of 1939-45. Indeed, one family lost 3 of its sons to The Great War.

Please support the 'Nostalgic Burwardsley' Photographic Exhibition to be held on 12th and 13th March between 10.30am and 4.00pm daily. This historic collection of photographs (many of which will not have been seen previously) is remarkable.

The venue is the stunning 'Successfactory' on Harthill Road, Burwardsley which also offers perfect parking.

Entry to the exhibition is £5 to include the exhibition catalogue and a delicious slice of homemade cake and a cup of tea/coffee. All proceeds will support the 'The Roll of Honour'.

We look forward to seeing you throughout the two-day event.
