Collection for a War Memorial in Tytherington
Home    WarMemorial

After the First World War a collection was made for a war memorial.  In all 68-6s-0d was raised, with the Lord of the Manor Squire Hardwicke Lloyd Hardwicke donating 5, as did the vicar and Charles Fry, landlord of the Swan Inn.  Headmaster of Tytherington School, Mr James Hemmingway donated 2.  However, as you can see from the original notes below, for various reasons not all villagers were happy about donating and many could not afford to.
