Throughout August the Banbury Guardian is revealing some of the fascinating stories uncovered by Banburyshire’s villages about members of their community who served in the First World War.

All Saints Church in Middleton Cheney was transformed into a scented haven of flowers as different village organisations pulled together to mark the centenary of the start of the war.

Twenty three soldiers from the village lost their lives during the Great War and each was remembered with a floral tribute placed on the individual soldier’s Commonwealth War Grave in the churchyard or around the war memorial. The theme from August 2-4 was ‘Poetry and Music’.
