“Let those who come after us see to it
that their names be not forgotten”*
Over one thousand servicemen from Macclesfield and the surrounding villages lost their lives during the First World War, and thousands of lives were irrevocably changed.
This website was created by the Macclesfield Reflects group to share the stories of local people during the Great War. If you have any photos, documents or information about anyone in the Macclesfield area who was involved in the Great War in any way, we’d love to hear from you – please use the contact form to tell us how you can help our project. Thank you.
Information is mostly being added in date order, so if you don’t find anything about your ancestor, please check back later – or follow us on Facebook or Twitter (see the column on the right) to find out about new additions and updates.
