I recently came across an article in The Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser - Friday 21 June 1901 which records that "it has been decided to erect a memorial tablet in the Parish Church of Witton, Northwich, recording the names of Yeomanry and Volunteers to South Africa from the Northwich District". Does anyone have any details of this memorial and the names thereon if it was in fact erected? Any information would be much appreciated.

That would be St Helen's Church, which was closed the only time I went to it (not a Sunday).

This seems to be the only ABW memorial inside the church.

Hi Berenice,
That's the only reference I could find too. I've emailed the church and will let you know if I get a reply. I was hoping for a list of recipients of the Northwich tribute medal. I will trawl through the newspapers again and see if I can find any record of a memorial unveiling at the church.
