BURY, ST PAULS WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Dorothy Hargreaves 2010

The memorial is to be found in St. Paul's Church, Bury. It takes the form of a bronze plaque. In November 2001 the church was in the care of the advisory board for redundant churches; in 2004 the property was damaged by fire and access was not possible as the roof collapsed; the memorial remained inside but the amount of damage until 2007 was not known. Eventually a decision was made that the memorials were to be re-sited in St Pauls School.
