World War 1 Commemoration

On November 11th 2018, over 100 Tunstall residents and invited guests attended a wonderful memorial service at St Michael and All Saints Church, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1. Candles

The event remembered not only the 131 men from Tunstall who fought in the War but especially the 18 who did not return and those left behind to carry on in farming, industry and all walks of life. Each of the 18 men was represented by a silhouette that sat amongst the attendees and that will remain in the church.

The event was lead by Dr Lucy Silovsky, whose Grandfather was at the first Battle of Cambrai, as a Company Commander in ‘B’ Battalion of the newly formed Tank Corps.Attendees
