RYTON REMEMBERS
'HELP for HEROES'

To commemorate the 100 years since the end of the Great War, Ann Duddridge and Cllr Susan Mackay, residents from the village of Great and Little Ryton, produced a detailed illustrated booklet to honour the sacrifice of local men and to recognise them as people who lived in and were part of their community.

The document brings together all the men who were born or lived in Ryton and were known to have serviced in World War 1. This includes men from Ryton who were killed on the battlefield, men who served and survived, many of whom were injured, and men not originally from Ryton who served in the war and came to live in Ryton immediately thereafter.

The Campaign Medals of WW1 are also pictured and explained, together with their ‘nicknames’.

Condover Parish Council supported publication of the booklet and copies were made available free within the Parish, with a request for a donation to Help for Heroes. There has been considerable interest from local people and from visitors to the area, some of whom found valuable information about their ancestors. There is also now a copy of the booklet in the Shropshire Archive.

The donations received to date amount to £430.00

A small number of copies of 'Ryton Remembers, are still available. Please contact the Parish Clerk for more information.
