Wellington Remembers
Wellington Remembers
Wellington's war memorial is the lych gate for All Saints' Church; the names of the men of the town who fell in the First World War are inscribed on plaques within it. Adjacent to that, on a fence above the railway cutting, is this display which also lists the names but also includes photographs where these are available. It is surrounded by poppy wreaths. In fact, as part of a research project supported by Wellington Town Council, Wellington History Group and the Heritage Lottery Fund, it has been possible to produce a biography of each individual and publish them in the form of an on-line book which is available here: LinkExternal link.
