New book

One of the aims of the group is to bring together the knowledge that the research team has gained throughout the project and share it with our local community.

As the project evolves, local schools and community groups will be invited to become involved with the project. It is hoped that the work of the group will benefit the wider community, by sharing the stories and acts of bravery that the men and women of Euxton endured in service.

In July 2011, a local historian, Stuart Clewlow published a booklet entitled 'In Memoriam - Military Memorials and Graves : Within the Borough of Chorley' , proceeds from Stuart's booklet are being donated to The Euxton War Memorial Group.

Two further publications written by Stuart Clewlow and Susan Balshaw, our researchers, have added an enormous amount of depth to the project.

The final booklet, Euxton Remembers as part of a National Heritage Lottery project, talks about the memorial and gives the story of everybody who is named on the monument which will be constructed in the Summer of 2015.

The group would like to thank Stuart and Susan for their tireless dedication to uncovering and telling the stories of the 50 Euxton souls who are named on the memorial.
