raised of £7,000 target by 0 supporters

    Weʼve raised £0 to Ensure there is local Memorial inscribed with the names of the 60 men from Astley who lost their lives in WW1.

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    We are trying to raise money to get a lasting memorial in Astley which will commemorate the lives of 60 Astley men who gave their lives in the First World War.
    Currently there is no such memorial to these men because the original, which was a large marble tablet on the wall in the old St Stephens church, was lost in the fire when the church was burned down in the early 1960`s. Some of the men`s names are mentioned on a memorial in Tyldesley cemetery, but not all.
    If we can raise the money, via donations and grants, we are hoping to erect a new memorial with all 60 names carved on it. This will cost us around £7000 and we would like to think we can achieve this target and get the memorial in place for the centenary celebrations to mark the end of the First World War (ie: November 2018)
