WW1 Tribute

The enclosed PIDLEY CUM FENTON FALLEN DETAILS 2018 includes details on all the WW1 fallen from Pidley and who are commemorated in our Churchyard or buried there.

This has been prepared in the run up to 1100hrs on Sunday the 11th of November 2018, the commemoration of 100 years since the end of the First World War.

On Saturday the 3rd of November 2018 from 1000hrs to 1600hrs there will be a display opening inside the church. The Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire Roger Herriot DL, is coming to formally open the display which will run for three weeks either side of the 11th Nov.

The village War Memorial will also be engraved with the name of Edward ANNISS aged 24 years of the New Zealand Rifle Brigade who was wounded in France brought home to a Military Hospital in Oxfordshire to recuperate, but died. As his parents lived in Pidley before emigrating to New Zealand, the family asked for him to be buried in Pidley where he now lies.
