Cinderford Baptist 1914-1918 war memorial

The World War I memorials in Cinderford Baptist Chapel.

Above: those who served and those killed in action. "The larger three panel one has signwritten at the top, but now faded, 'Members of Mr. Hale's Class who served in The Great War 1914-18'".

Leigh Williams asked (February 2019): "... noticed in the Memorial there are the following names: Church, G, and two surnames George. I am wondering if anyone has information on these people, or their surnames. My Great Grandfather Henry Boyce Church was born about 1849 and Baptised in Cinderford. He married Sarah Clark in 1870 . His parents were Thomas Church and Mary George. Henry went down into the mines at the age or ten. His first child Mary Ann Church was born abt. 1871 in Cinderford, followed by the birth of Frederick, William Henry, Alice Emily Joseph (all born in Cinderford). Sometime about 1882-83 the family moved to Castleford YK. As I live in Canada would appreciate hearing from any family still in Gloucestershire or anyone related to the Church, George families. Kind regards, Leigh"
