May 21st-28th is the Commonwealth War Graves Commission annual awareness week which aims to encourage people to discover the World War heritage on their doorstep. Many of the men and women who fought and died in the First and Second World Wars are buried or commemorated in local parish cemeteries, the stones and plaques maintained by the CWGC.
Bradninch is home to nine war graves. Eight lie in St Disen’s Churchyard and the ninth is in the graveyard at the Baptist Church. More information on these graves can be found on our ‘Lest we forget’ page.
