The memorial is unusual in recording the dates of death of the men commemorated. It should be noted that the dates given sometimes differ slightly from those recorded in official sources.

This memorial has mostly been compiled from official sources. It would be good to be able to expand it with more personal material - memories, stories, photos, etc. If you have any suitable material or any corrections please contact Greg. For news of updates follow @BridgnorthHeros on Twitter.
