War Memorials and Memorials are a rich source of information for the family historian. They are also a focal point for a community and now almost 100 years and possibly 60 years later they are still revered by families and relatives.
Although this blog is meant to be primarily a source of information, let us not forget those brave people who put their lives on the line and stood and were counted - if only by chance at times.We salute you!

The Sacred Heart Church in Blackpool
I want to split the photographs of the church into two separate blogs. The church is so magnificent that it deserves a page all to itself, the two memorials deserve a page as well. This is the memorial page.
