Acknowledgements

The information above and in the associated pages is all taken from the original folder produced in 1998 by Colonel Tim Beath, who at the time was churchwarden of St James' Cardington, to mark the 80th Anniversary of the ending of the First World War on Armistice Day, 11 November 1918. Representatives of the four Parishes of Hope Bowdler, Eaton under Heywood, Rushbury and Cardington undertook research into the family backgrounds, Service records, and final resting places or memorials overseas which apply to each of the men or women named on our Village War Memorials. The acknowledgements in that booklet are reporduced here.
