From the introduction: Following the services of Remembrance held at St Andrew's in November, 2008, members of the congregation expressed an interest in discovering more about the war memorials both inside the building and in the church grounds. In response, a project was launched to discover something of the lives of casualties named on the memorials and to' gather reminiscences of life in Melton during World War 2. This booklet brings together our findings to date in the hope that we might better understand the consequences of war and ensure the facts and memories are handed on to future generations. Contents include:

Foreword
Introduction
Not Forgotten Association
Memorials at St Andrew's
Memorials at Melton Old Church
The Names:
World War 1
World War 2
WW2 memories of Melton
