The cenotaph has stood the test of time but is now in need of some TLC, and over the next few months it is to be cleaned and some of the damaged lettering will be renewed.

In the autumn it is hoped to hold a special community service in which we would like any descendants of the names on the cenotaph to attend. If you are one of those relatives please contact us at heritage.foresttown@ntlworld.com
