Macclesfield Reflects and Cheshire Villages Great War Society member Harry Carlisle has produced a revised, second edition of his A4 illustrated softback book, “Not Just a Name”, giving a background to 667 of the 669 names listed on the Macclesfield Park Green World War I war memorial; just two names remain to be identified. Most have photographs and other details sourced from relatives, archives and local newspapers of the time. The book now has 428 pages.
Copies may be purchased at Cheshire Villages Great War Society events or directly from Harry, using this downloadable order form. It is also available at the Macclesfield Visitor Information Centre.
A similar book covering war memorials from local villages, “For the freedom of us all“, is also available.
