War Memorial

The war memorial in the west porch bears the names of 80 men who died in the First World War. Research has shown that while the majority came from Congleton some came from neighbouring towns and villages. Their connections with St Peters are not always clear. The battles where they died are carved into a roundel at the bottom of the centre section of the memorial. Hanging next to the memorial is a scroll of men from the parish who volunteered at some undated stage of the war. The church graveyard contains six Commonwealth War Graves Commission stones. Some other men are remembered on family graves. The local “Congleton Chronicle” has a good archive of the men from the town who died in the war. There is a folder of research covering the lives of several men available in the west porch.
