Poynton's Fallen Soldiers

Poynton Town Council has collated a virtual exhibition of information about local servicemen and women who gave their lives during both the First and Second World War and who are named on the War Memorial at St George’s Church, along with interesting information about Poynton during the War.

Please click on ‘Enlarge’ to view full size portraits.

The information has been collated from a number of different sources, in particular from Harry Carlisle, Cheshire Villages Great War Society and Poynton Local History Society and their book ‘Poynton: A Village at War 1939-1945’. More recently we have gratefully received contributions from Poynton residents.

If you have more information about the servicemen and women from Poynton, that you are happy to share, please email Sharon.duke@poyntontowncouncil.gov.uk.
