Saxton Heritage Weekend

We have been researching the men from Saxton, Towton and Barkston Ash who served in the First World War, the criteria was that they were either born here or lived here. To date we have 66 researched but more identified. We have covered the men who are on the War Memorials and as part of the research identified men who were either born or lived in the villages and also died.


This is an ongoing project and we are looking to families for information, for anyone who would like to help with the research. Eventually we hope to add the information to the Sherburn local history web site and possibly publication.


One of the elements which needs further research is what was the effect on the villages of the War.
