Friends of Marple Memorial Park's WWI Timeline Tribute display in the park has been updated with information about William Duxbury.

Almost nothing is known about William's connection to Marple. Regimental records indicate that he was born in Mellor and his home was in Hyde and there may be a family connection to James Duxbury (died 4 April 1917).

Over the weekend Friends of the Park had a dry run fitting 141 knitted poppies on the war memorial handrails - one for each man remembered from WWI.

These will be back in November for Remembrance 2018. Didn't they look great!

3 more of the permanent Timeline panels have been installed today.

One of these includes an acknowledgement to Marple Area Committee, who provided £1,000 to pay for the displays.

HB Printing are doing a wonderful job of turning our plans into reality too!

Friends of the Park are very pleased to have installed the first permanent panel on the Marple WWI Timeline this morning.

A big thank you to HB Printing, who are producing the panels for us, and to Marple Area Committee, who have funded the new display.

There will be 6 panels in all depicting the 141 men killed during WWI on the memorial.

Proofs have been approved on panels 2 to 4 and cards for the 5th panel are being prepared. These panels will be installed as soon as practical once printed.

The final panel will remain temporary with men being added on the 100th anniversary of their death until 1st November. In November the final permanent panel will be installed with all the remaining men on it, including the 8 who died after Armistice, so that all 141 men are commemorated for Remembrance Sunday 2018.

Friends of Marple Memorial Park's WWI Timeline Tribute display in the park has been updated with information about Donald Harlow Budenberg.

Following the war the families of men who were buried in military graves were allowed to have a personal message engraved on the headstone. Mrs and Mrs Budenberg chose a phrase they thought best described their 21 year-old son: "A Very Gentle Perfect Knight".

Friends of Marple Memorial Park's WWI Timeline Tribute display in the park has been updated with information about Josiah Bennett.

It's thought that Josiah was killed instantly, literally blow to bits, when his gun was hit by shellfire. A pal later reported that they could find no trace of him.
