In May 2012 I spent an afternoon plotting and recording each of the war graves. The idea being that on the given date of death I would place a floral tribute on the particular grave with a card inscribed with NOT FORGOTTEN. There are 18 graves in total. 5 Army lads from WW1; 5 RAF, 2 RN & 6 Army from WW2
Today's forgotten hero was 10984 Corporal FB Ward, King's Royal Rifle Corps, died of wounds 25th April 1915. I have been unable to find out anything about Cpl Ward but I do know that there was a large hospital in Sutton Coldfield Park. The park is approximately 1 mile from the church.
