Men on the Albert Schools WWI Memorial

War Memorial Plaque found in the Albert Schools

Originally from the Union Rooms Mission Church

There are eight men named on the WWI War Memorial plaque recovered by the Marple Website from the Albert Schools in 2019 and now restored and on display in Marple URC Church on Hibbert Lane.
