Christ Church War Graves

17 Apr 2019, 7 a.m.

We are delighted to announce that following an approach by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission the PCC has given its consent to a permanent sign indicating that there are war graves in the churchyard. The sign has been attached to the notice board near the main gate.

We have three graves and more details can be found on the CWGC website or by contacting Annette Lucas.

Each grave represents young lives lost in the pursuit of peace and  we hope that the sign will encourage members of the public to seek out the graves and take a moment to reflect on the sacrifice made by the young men.
