Cemetery tour will tell stories of First World War casualties buried in the borough
12:20pm Saturday 29th March 2014 in News
STORIES of First World War casualties who are buried in the borough are to be told for the first time.
WLCT will share some of the stories its archives and local studies team has discovered about casualties from Wigan and Leigh at an open day in Wigan Crematorium, in Lower Ince Cemetery, on April 12 from 10am until 1pm.
General tours of the facility will take place every 30 minutes and - as part of a bigger project commemorating the centenary of the war – there will be a history walk at 11am.
