WW1 100 years, 15 September


this is just a quick reminder that tomorrow morning we will be commemorating the first of those from the Benefice who died 100 years ago during the First World War.

The short act of remembrance is open to any who are able to join us. On this occasion we will be marking the death of Charles Smith, who died on 15th September 1914, and was buried in St Mary’s churchyard in Shrewton. We will meet at his grave for 11am.

The act of remembrance will last only 5 minutes or so. We will be marking the 100th anniversary of all those who are either buried in our churchyards, or named on our war memorials over the next 5 or so years. I will endeavour to send the list of names to the local villages each month.

with kind regards,

Eleanor Rance
