Macclesfield WWI Book

Macclesfield Reflects and Cheshire Villages Great War Society member Harry Carlisle has produced a 422 page A4 illustrated softback book, “Not Just a Name”, giving a background to 664 of the 667 names listed on the Macclesfield Park Green World War I war memorial; just 3 names remain to be identified. Most have photographs and other details sourced from relatives, archives and local newspapers of the time.

The book costs £16 and may be purchased at future Macclesfield Reflects or Cheshire Villages Great War Society events, the Macclesfield Town Hall Visitor Information Centre, or directly from Harry, who lives in Rainow, near Macclesfield.
