St Thomas' Church, St Annes

Attended a the christening of my granddaughter at this church, Coincidently really close to where I used to live. I suspect the names of these fallen could also be on the St Annes and Lytham memorials. But I am not sure. This memorial is quite well hidden on the right hand side of the aisle in a dark side of the church. The first image is of the memorial, the others are pictures of the church. The church tower is a financial liability, there is always a possibility that it may have to be demolished. I will publish more pictures of the memorial in due course.

The memorial on the South wall.
White marble with a brass plate, only mentions
those who fell in the Great War
