Roll of Honour

Over the course of the two World Wars, dozens of young men from the Coldwater area signed up, put on a uniform, and shipped overseas to fight For King and Country.  Of those, 28 never came back.  The Coldwater Roll of Honour pays tribute to those 28 who were killed in action.  You may click on the underlined names for short biographies.
