Barton Under Needwood War Memorial

The War Memorial in the village of Barton Under Needwood in Staffordshire may be found outside St James’ Parish Church. It is on a small fenced island and the bronze plaques are not easy to read.

The churchyard of St James’ Church  has 8 casualties buried in it, and there are two wall memorials inside the church and a display relating to Private Francis George Keeling who lived in the village and who was killed on the 19th of May 1915. He is remembered on the grave of his brother who is buried in the churchyard. I have created a “community” on Lives of the First World War to commemorate the men on these two memorials
