KNUTSFORD servicemen who lost their lives in the First World War are taking pride of place in houses and businesses across the town.

Almost 140 stickers have been delivered to addresses across the town as part of the Remembering the War Dead 1914-18 Window Plaque project.

The aim of the project was to place commemorative window stickers in the former homes of Knutsford soldiers who fought and died in The Great War for the duration of the centenary.

Clare and Illingworth received four plaques, for Joseph Lowe, Daniel Caulfield, Patrick Leech and Harry Hammond, and the practice created a special window display as a tribute to the men, which will be in place until the end of the month.

Optometrist Richard Clare said: “We were really pleased to have been asked to help honour those lost from Knutsford during the First World War. Seeing the community around us join together to do something so poignant was very humbling.”

The project was created by residents Tony Davies, Val Dawson and Andrew Malloy and the trio said that the response has been ‘truly heart warming’.

They thanked the volunteers who helped deliver the project, including Knutsford Hosts, and also thanked Knutsford Promenades, Cheshire East Reflects, MDR Creative and Monckton Properties for their support.
