The lives and stories of the men commemorated on
Oswestry WW1 War Memorial Gates
Frederick H Davies | Lieutenant. | KIA 1 May 1917
Frederick Harry Davies was born on 12 October 1889 at Oswestry. He was the youngest of 3 children born to David and Mary Davies.
In 2016, Qube was awarded funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund to research and record biographic details of the fallen men who are listed on the Oswestry WW1 War Memorial, sited at the entrance to Cae Glas Park.
The project aims to uncover civilian and military information for each of the men listed on the pillars, enabling each of their unique stories to be told as completely as possible and interpret their lives and sacrifice in the context of ‘Oswestry’ and ‘The Great War’.
Volunteers have been working hard to research the stories behind the men, each of which is listed on this website. To the best of our knowledge the information on this site is accurate and up to date. If you have any queries please feel free to contact us.
Qube has recently been awarded funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund for the Men on Gates Heritage Project. To see how you could get involved, click the link below.
