Rainhill Civic Society

The Great War

Our new web site rainhillremembers.uk is now on line. Visit the site to see a wealth of information about the Rainhill soldiers who served in the First World War. You can also find out about the three VAD hositals that were set up here during the war, with pictures and stories about those who stayed there.

Three of the stories we researched have now been moved to the Archive page.

You can buy a booklet containing more stories at Rainhill Library, at our meetings or from the publications page of this site.
