The Woodsetton War Memorial was erected in 1922 in remembrance of the men of Woodsetton who lost their lives in the service of their country during the First World War. Almost 100 years later, the war memorial stands proud in Woodsetton recording their names. The memorial stands as testament to the sacrifice that those soldiers made.
‘Lest Woodsetton Forget’, commissioned by local charity Woodsetton Charitable Trust, has been created as a tribute to those soldiers; each lost one listed on the war memorial is recorded in an individual ‘profile’ on a dedicated page of this website. The profiles can be found using the search facility (see right) or by indexing the profiles by surname.
This website also marks the re-siting of the war memorial, another part of the wider project being carried out by Woodsetton Trust. The memorial was historically situated in Swan Village in the ground of a disused church, fronting a lane which is now a main commuter route. The re-siting part of the project has seen the relocation of the memorial to a more suitable place. Photos of the memorial as it stands at its new site are available here, while Woodsetton Trust’s website gives more details of the wider project.
