Tyldesley War Memorial

Tyldesley War Memorial

Tyldesley War Memorial is situated in the grounds of the cemetery, Hough Lane, Tyldesley, Lancashire. Tyldesley Branch of the Royal British Legion will continue to remember all those listed upon that memorial and those who who are buried in the cemetery. The 4th of August 2014 marked the 100th anniversary of the day Britain entered one of the costliest conflicts in history – the First World War – with fighting continuing until the 11th of November 1918, Armistice Day. The Royal British Legion was founded by British veterans in the aftermath of the First World War and is at the forefront of Centenary commemorations. As we come together in Remembrance of events a century ago, we are reminded of the important welfare work the Legion continues to provide today and will need to provide in the future. A century on from the First World War, those serving in the Armed Forces, veterans and their families still call on us for help with almost every aspect of daily life. The problems facing First World War veterans when they returned to the UK continue to affect serving personnel and veterans today: whether living with bereavement or disability, finding employment, or coping with financial stress. As the UK’s Custodian of Remembrance, the Legion is leading the nation in respecting the sacrifices of the First World War. As the UK’s largest Armed Forces charity, the Legion is leading the nation in providing direct care and support to Armed Forces and veteran families in need.
