Memorials & Family History

Wooden wall mounted list of those who died in the 1st and 2nd World Wars
Communicant members of St Peter’s killed in two world wars

There are several memorials around the church, including of course the wooden carved memorial to communicant members of the church who were killed in World Wars I & II. We think there must have been a memorial in the school, but have to assume that it was dumped during the demolition of the school buildings. If anyone has any memories of such a memorial, or even knows someone who rescued it from destruction, please get in touch!

S.S. Stockport

We also have a brass plaque and bell memorial to the convoy ship S.S. Stockport. This was instaled by the Merchant Navy Association.


We have a list of the burials in the surrounding graveyard, with some inscriptions. Sadly these records have not been digitised as yet. We also have a large collection of images of walks days and events from the early/mid 20th Century. Some of these have been digitised, but the majority are still only accessible in the church.

All records of births, marriages and deaths are held by Chester archives. There is a searchable database the Cheshire BMD website free of charge, where you can then order copies of the certificates.
