St Cuthbert's servicemen and memorials

In the churchyard at St Cuthbert's in Lytham there are both memorials and also gravestones. The photos are below. Somewhat disappointing that the graves have the little Remembrance Day crosses and the memorials do not. Perhaps the memorials are not so obvious. But its nice that people remember anyway. Hopefully I can derive links from some of them. Some will cross reference onto the main memorial in Lytham at Hastings Place and at St Cuthbert's.

As before I appear to have missed several servicemen's graves. Any of the links will take you back to St Cuthbert's graveyard. There you will find the missing graves. There is more information on many of the CWGC website. The memorials will also take you back to the CWGC website too. I have not done any searching anywhere else.
