Clayton War Memorial

Clayton Parish ChurchI was visiting my mum’s grave in Clayton over the Christmas Period and happened to have a digital camera on me. So I thought I would take a few random photographs of Headstones and the memorial on the way out of the church.
The war memorial is under the Lychgate and contains names of soldiers killed during the second world war and the Falklands war.
