Croft Street

A wooden memorial stood for many years in the wall of a grocer's shop at the corner of Croft Street and Market Street, Hyde.

Over the years the wood rotted badly, and the structure disappeared when the shop was refurbished in the 1970's.

It was about 8ft high and 4ft wide and had a glass front. There was a shelf for flowers, while wreathes were hung underneath.

Besides the names of the fallen, the memorial also bore the names of all the men from Croft Street area who fought in the Great War. The early names were evenly spaced out, but later ones were crammed in.
