Despite the long gap between posts, there has been plenty of work being done on the research and the memorial project. Money from the Heritage Lottery Fund has paid for the war diaries for many of the men (they are not all available) and the entries for the dates of death will be added.

The money from the HLF has also paid for a new website for the project and the entries for all the men are being updated and added to it. The website has its own domain which will eventually also hold a site for related aspects of the research such as the Holy Trinity WW1 memorial which was also taken from St James's Church.

I have been given a response to my application for a grant from the War Memorials Trust, although they seem very positive about the recreation of the memorial I have been advised to delay the application until the church building restoration has secured funding.

I will be taking part in the St James' Church Heritage Open Day in September - more details to come!
