Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Names of the men from the parish of Haswell who gave their lives for their King & Country in the Great War 1914-1919.
Their bright spirits still tenant the hearts of those who loved them.
They lie imperishably fair, crowned with the garlands of immortal youth.
