Bickerstaffe Remembers Home Page


This site has been compiled with two aims in mind.

First and foremost as the title suggests it is meant to be a permanent reminder to the people of Bickerstaffe, of the supreme sacrifice paid by 33 parishioners in two World Wars.

Secondly, it is a record to which future visitors to the various battlefields can refer, to find the exact location of all the lads’ graves, or places of commemoration.

The information on this site was compiled in 1990, after interviewing the many relatives or those with knowledge that could be found 72 years on. Furthermore, it will give a true meaning when we stand at the Church Memorial each year on Remembrance Sunday and proclaim:

‘We Will Remember Them’
