Littleborough’s History TOP TOP TOP

No War Memorial for these fallen heroes?

As far as researches show there are 5 local soldiers who are not remembered on any known local War Memorial. Apparently, they cannot be included on the Cenotaph? Check out their stories or go to the LHAS Remembering Littleborough’s Soldiers facebook page by the link above

Family Stories

Many families lost more than one son or relative during the Great War. During 1918 we are remembering these sacrifices with a special page devoted to the memory.

Our first memorial is for the Butterworth Family of Littleborough who lost 3 sons in the Great War. Our second is to Nora Caveney, the first ATS girl to be killed in the Second World War. Our third is for Turf Terrace - Sorrow and Glory Remembered.


New Pages have just been included showing local Flints and the Littleborough Hoard
