World War One Project


There are four registered war memorials in the area:

  • St. Anne’s Church, Chapeltown (inside by the pulpit). To read about the St. Anne’s memorial click here.
  • The Methodist Church, Bolton Road, Edgworth (in the church grounds).
  • The Entwistle Methodist Church memorial and Roll of Honour, which is now located inside the Methodist Church in Edgworth
  • The 144 photographs in The Barlow, Bolton Road, Edgworth

As part of the commemorations, a further frame of photographs is being compiled mainly from obituaries, showing men who are not included in the 144. This will also be displayed in The Barlow.

If you would like a complete list of names on the memorials please contact Linda Spencer. Biographies for men who died as a result of the war can be searched by year of death (1914 etc) as well as name.
