The Fallen of Milnrow

As part of our War Memorial Restoration Appeal we are inviting everyone to support the re-lettering of the names of the local lads who gave their lives in the Great War.

Your £10 donation will go a long way to have the names re-instated so that we never forget the ultimate sacrifice for King, country, family and friends. Your name will be entered in a scroll that will be displayed in church to recognise your support.

Please spread the word.  We’d be delighted to receive support from local business.  Just drop us a line on
