I've always walked past this building without actually knowing what it is. One day I walked past and it was open and so I did myself a favour and had a look. The inside has numerous plaques and dedications to those who died in WW1...More

A place to look at records of those men and women who have given their lives in the service of their country. You can ask to see specific entries if you have family or friends listed there. A small, quiet space, fit for purpose.
