The Rolls of Honour

Clarence & Adelphi Mills

Mill roll of honour

George Swindells & Son Limited Rolls of Honour

The Clarence and Adelphi Mills were both owned by George Swindells & Sons. A combined Roll of Honour for WW1 was framed and mounted, along with a much smaller combined Roll of Honour for WW2. The WW1 Roll listed rank, initials, surname and regiment for each man, and symbols alongside some of the names indicated if he was wounded or dead. The regiments are not always correctly identified (it was often the case that a soldier was not mobilised with the regiment or battalion with which he had initially enlisted).

These Rolls were probably originally located in the Clarence Mill (as the Clarence names are listed first). Later they were mounted by the stairs up to the gallery by the West door of St John's Church (this probably happened when the cotton mill ceased operating). When St John's was closed, the Rolls of Honour were removed from the former church for conservation.

They have recently been installed in the Adelphi Mill (ground floor, in the waiting area adjacent to the lift), and are on public view during office hours (Monday to Friday).

(The photograph shows the Rolls of Honour when they were still inside St John's Church. The WW1 Roll is the large framed item - the much smaller WW2 Roll can be seen just to its left)

The details for WW1 are as follows. Names have been rearranged into alphabetical order.
