05 August 2014War Memorial re-dedication

On Sunday 3rd August a short, moving, service to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War was held in St Mary's Church, Plumtree.

This service was not intended to be a celebration but an occasion to mark the event which had such profound consequences, not only for individuals or families in the parish of Plumtree, but for the community of nations in the 20th Century.

At the end of the service, the choir and congregation moved out of the church and the refurbished War Memorial was re-dedicated (with the name of George Taylor added as the nineteenth First World War casualty from the parish of Plumtree, Normanton and Clipston).

Full details of the War Memorial, including short biographies of those who are commemorated from two World Wars and photographs of headstones, can be found on the Plumtree War Memorial page.
