Bagshot Remembered

Bagshot did indeed remember those who gave their lives for our freedom. The Parish Church was packed for the Remembrance Sunday service, with chairs having to be wheeled in from the adjoining hall.

Yet more people were waiting at the War Memorial for the Act of Remembrance, two minutes silence and laying wreaths.

Dozens of intricately painted stones had appeared on the War Memorial, many featuring the names of the departed – a very moving tribute, especially to those who discovered that an unknown person had taken time and care to pay tribute to their ancestor.








Following the service, displays featuring memories of the fallen were set up in the church and Church Centre. The names of all those recorded on the War Memorial can be found here and the inscriptions on the memorial here.  A research project has sought to trace the history of those who died and a profile of each of those who died in WW1 can be seen here.
