Aston-cum-Aughton History Group is proud to add a new page in memory of our community’s loss in the first and second world wars.

We have researched on the Commonwealth War Graves’ website the names recorded on the various war memorials in Aston-cum-Aughton Parish and these are now kept in albums that are available on our open days etc.   We have decided to make this information available to anyone searching for their ancestors on the web.

Aston parish did not have a single war memorial to all their dead and after several years of work, a new war memorial was erected on the land at the side of the William Layne Reading Room, Aughton Lane, Aston in November 2011.

This beautiful memorial is in memory of all those who died in all conflicts but does not display any names.

We have also attempted to put in links to some sites of interest, however there are many others, we would suggest the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website for an official site and also The War Graves Photographic Project where researchers can find photographs of war graves. We are not affiliated with any of the linked websites on this page.
