Eynesbury War Memorial Project
Deb Depledge is researching all the names on the two war memorials. Do you know any of the names listed, is one of them your relative?
If so she would like to hear from you.
She is creating a memorial book in honour of the men and women named on the two memorials, which will be on view in the church.
