The Official unveiling of the War Memorial on August 16th, 1924
The Official unveiling of the South Hylton War Memorial on August 16th, 1924

At the beginning of the First World War, a man called Fabian Ware, too old to serve in the army, arrived in France in September 1914 to lead a mobile unit of the British Red Cross. He very soon noticed that there was no one in charge of marking and recording the graves of those killed. How distressing this was both for relatives at home and for those still fighting, to think that lives had been sacrificed and then the bodies just left to rot in some anonymous field. Fabian Ware decided to make sure this wasn’t allowed to happen.  © CWGC
