Cross of sacrifice

When complete this web site should provide information for over 150 villagers from Collingham, Linton and Micklethwaite who served in World War One.

We want to make the information we have found accessible to future generations of villagers as a memorial to the sacrifices that residents made in the past.

We want to provide easy means to find our information and will be instituting various means of searching our database from this page in the future. At present this page is under construction.
