Middleton Roll of Honour
Middleton Roll of Honour
This Roll of Honour has been in my possession for a long time - so long I can't recall where I copied it. It does however give a number of additional names to those already listed in the Features section of this site - only 6 of the forty plus names are on the other document. I don't know why they are listed separately, and can only surmise that this is a general roll and the other reflects those in the congregation of the Holy Trinity Church at Middleton.
