Tupton – Lest We Forget

This project involved research to trace the details of all the names (WWI& WWII) listed on the village of Tupton’s War Memorial.

The research was carried out by David Parmley, with help from other individuals along the way.

The Parish Council also supported the project, and funded a trip to France and Belgium to enable the graves and memorials of Tupton soldiers to be located and photographed.

On the anniversary of a soldier’s death, the village flag is flown at half mast, and the soldier information is displayed on a board.

Funding has also been gained for representatives from all village groups/societies to visit some of the graves in France and Belgium in 2017.
