You may have read in the local press that Bunbury residents have been left heartbroken because thieves have stolen the metal War Memorial plaques from stone pillars at the entrance to St Boniface Church.

The two bronze plaques contained the names of the men of Bunbury who were killed in both The Great War and World War II.

That such desecration could happen at all and particularly in a neighbouring village is shocking and turns attention to our own War Memorial.

Like other memorials in Cheshire and nationwide, these plaques provide a focus for 'Remembrance'.

Our Local History Website gives significant information regarding Tattenhall War Memorial. Terri Hull and Yvonne Keeping have researched enormous amounts of personal information regarding many of those individuals who are listed.

The words inscribed on our War Memorial state 'is this nothing to you, all ye who pass by'.

We, therefore, ask everyone to be extra vigilant please; it is unthinkable that acts of wanton vandalism should be directed at such aspects of our local heritage. In part, we are the custodians of our Memorial — now and for the future.
