Read our final item under This Week in WW1


There is now a new category on the parish council website called Wilsden WW1 History where you can read about the Wilsden soldiers in the Great War along with a list of where they lived in Wilsden. If you live in an older house in Wilsden you may be interested in finding out if there was a serviceman at your address.

The link to this category is:    http://www.wilsdenparishcouncil.gov.uk/wilsden-harecroft/wilsden-ww1-history

There is also a paper list in a file at Wilsden Post Office which can be read during opening hours.
