On Remembrance Sunday, Tattenhall remembered those who have died for their country.

St Alban's Church was packed for the annual Remembrance Sunday Service. The 1st Sandstone Scout Group and 1st Tattenhall Guides and Brownies were in attendance along with representatives of village groups and societies. It was also good to see so many current members of the armed forces and several veterans mingling with the crowds.

In all, 15 wreaths were laid at the War Memorial along with several small crosses remembering personal friends and family.

Wreaths were laid by St Alban's Church, Tattenhall and District Parish Council, 1st Sandstone Scout Group, 1st Tattenhall Guides and Brownies, Tattenhall Park School, The Barbour Institute, The Friends of St Alban's & Probus Club, Tattenhall W.I., Tattenhall Over Fifties Club, Tattenhall Business Alliance and Chehsire Farm Ice Cream.

Tattenhall's Roll Of Honour
There are 44 names of local men on our Village War Memorial. This number is not exhaustive. Families had the option of placing a name on a local War Memorial, including the name on an existing family headstone or requesting that a Commonwealth War Graves Commission headstone be erected in a local churchyard.

In the Roll of Honour in the Church are the names of ALL the men who marched off to war.

THE GREAT WAR — there are 199 names of men who served in this conflict. Considering that there was no Rose Corner, Keysbrook, Harding Avenue, Greenlands, Rookery Drive, Oaklands Avenue or Crescent or Covert Rise estate; this is a big number for a small village.

WORLD WAR TWO — there are 133 names of men who served in this conflict. By now there had been some more houses built but Tattenhall was still a very small village.

The individual stories of many of the fatalities of both conflicts can be found on our local history website. CLICK HERE to read about World War I casualties. CLICK HERE to read about World War II casualties.
