From the introduction: It is now a century since the Great War broke out across Europe. During those traumatic years, 1914-1918, Northwich and the surrounding areas lost many young men - regular soldiers, volunteers and conscripts. Men who were born inthe area, or who happened to live or work in this area of Mid-Cheshire.
In and around Northwich there are many memorials to whose who dies fighting in that war or as a result of wounds they received. The purpose of writing this book is to record, in a single work of reference, the monuments and the names of those recorded upon them: those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country - men who journeyed away never to return....
