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’.
