I have yet to complete Williams story but will post it on the webpage when I have.


WW1 Research

March will be the last month I will be listing the men by the month they died. I have now done the full year and hopefully all of the brave Old Whittington men will have been remembered on the day they died.

I am continuing to research the remaining 34 men and will post their information on here and on the website as before and any family contributions now and any time in the future will be appreciated.

The hard copies of my research are being printed by Rev Jo Morris Rector of Whittington and they will be kept at the church as a reference point in the future if anyone happens to call there whilst undertaking family research.
