Lovely website. Will be visiting Leek very soon to pay my tribute to my Great, Great Grandfathers brothers who are both on the Memorial. There names were James Cheshire & Samuel Cheshire. I have letters written to their father, these had to be read to their father as he was unable to read or write. My great Aunt May James (nee Cheshire) passed these to me.
I have been doing some family history, so therefore would like to hear from any other Cheshire's.

Web site well put together.
My grandfather A Unsworth is also listed on the war memorial.
One of his daughters is still alive and well and living in Dorset. He had three daughters and they had been up to see the memorial when they were a bit younger.
Very special time to remember in 2014.

A very interesting site my great grandfather's name is on the monument, also my grandfather Albert Yeates served in the Leek battery and was awarded the MM but I cannot find why he was awarded it

I will be thinking about my late grandfather Walter Serrell this coming saturday (13-09-2014) as the parade makes its way for the first mile from the West End to the monument. He's featured on a couple of the photographs of the Old Leek Battery as it makes its way from Derby Street to Ashbourne Road as he and his battery colleagues went to war. He was lucky he survived the carnage and came home many as we know did not. I will also be thinking about the members of the Graham family from Leek who died on active service and will never forget the sacrifice they and the 400 or so from Leek who also perished.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.

Although an 'import' to the town, I have lived in Leek since 1972 and I am extremely proud of my adopted town, its heritage and people. Our Monument is a magnificent commemoration to the fallen of Leek and surrounding area in both the Great War and World War II. Although not the 'official' town memorial, the Monument, as it is known locally, serves as a focal point in the remembrance of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old; ages shall not weary them or the years condemn; at the going down of the sun, we WILL remember them.

Lest we forget
