Milton First World War Memorial – 2018

Service of Blessing

Milton’s memorial to the fallen in World War I was first installed in the entrance to the Village Hall (previously the Mission Room) in 1920.   Over the years it disintegrated and only the top scroll survived.   The Village Hall Committee rescued the scroll and used it to create a new memorial which is now situated on an outside wall of Milton Village Hall, with a new custom made stone surround.   It was fitting that in the centenary year of the ending of the Great War, this new memorial received a blessing  re-dedication to the soldiers mentioned on the memorial.

On Sunday December 2nd around 40 villager, friends, and relatives of the fallen, gathered in Milton Village Hall and enjoyed coffee and mince pies before the Blessing at 2pm.  People stood in the area in front of the Memorial and along the pavement outside the Village Hall, to hear the  names being read out and readings and Prayers spoken by members of the Village. The Blessing was then conducted by Rev Andrew Baguley, following which children laid tributes of flowers on the Memorial.
