First World War Memorial Programme
Civic Voice is the national charity for the civic movement in England. As part of its plans to commemorate the centenary of World War I, it commissioned a project to ensure the nation's memorials are fitting tributes to the fallen.
Nia Jones, a local volunteer, carried out a number of studies on memorials in Cheshire and Shropshire including the War Memorial in Tarvin.
The Parish Council were delighted to receive a copy of her report on behalf of the village. Click on the link to the left to read its content.
As a result of Nia's submission, on 11th November 2016, within days of the 100th anniversary of the end of the Battle of the Somme, we received the wonderful news that the War Memorial has now been designated a Grade II listed building.
