WE REMEMBER TODAY

 

We remember two men from Whittington who died on 3rd July 1916.

George Bates who came from Church Street Old Whittington and is buried in Montauban Cemetery France.

Fred Lilliman who came from Station Lane Old Whittington and is buried in Corbie Communal Cemetery Extension. He was 27. I have already completed my research on Fred and you can read it here https://oldwhittingtonops.com/lilliman-fred/

Both men were serving with the 9th Battalion Scottish Rifles and they are both remembered on Old Whittington and The Brushes War Memorials.
