People from Ash and Ridley
served in - WWI
In towns and villages throughout
the country there are memorials dedicated to the men and woman who gave their
lives during WWI and WWII. In Ash next Ridley the memorial lists the names of
eight men from WWI and nine men and one young girl from WWII.
Each November a service of remembrance
is held in memory of those listed. However with the passage of time, with
surviving relatives and friends growing steadily fewer, the people behind the
names on the memorial become even more remote and impersonal.
The following webpages are
an ongoing effort to try and ensure that those names remain as real people who
once lived, worked and played in the parish. If you have any details however
small about these people and families, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also listed are the names of
those people that served in both Wars and returned.
