CREATON WAR MEMORIAL

100th Anniversary of start of the First World War


Part of the inscription on the village War Memorial in the Churchyard reads:

LET THOSE
THAT COME AFTER SEE TO IT
THAT THEIR NAMES BE
NOT FORGOTTEN

2014 was the centenary of the start of the First World War, in which Creaton lost twenty men from a very small village.

Time and the weather took their toll on the Memorial, and the above photograph shows the restored and cleaned version.

The Village History Group set aside £900 from our fund-raising activities, and also had a substantial donation from the Creaton Group of Charities.
