Hilldale Community Association

Hilldale and Bispham were small commmunities in 1914 - farming and the quarry dominated the local economy but men from Hilldale and Bispham or with connections to Hilldale and Bispham went to war.

On Saturday 13th September the Hilldale Community Association with Darren Poyser presented an evening of songs, stories and archive film in commemoration of the Great War - the "war to end all wars".

Richard Houghton has researched the records and compiled a list of Hilldale and Bispham men who died in the war.
They are:
  Arthur Carter
  John Halton
  Fred or Francis Hodgets
  David Holmes
  John Parr
  Harry Shires
  William Wells
  Lawrence Wilkinson
 There was a display of information for each of these men in the Hall on the 13th which is now lodged in the Parbold Library.
