Abbey United Reformed Church, Romsey

Roll of Honour Stained Glass Window

In 2014 the Abbey United Reformed Church began to research the impact of World War One on the congregation. They soon discovered that the three churches that then formed the Congregational Church saw 228 men go to fight. Throughout the four years of war the churches' magazine gives details on the men and some involvement that the troops from the surrounding camps had on the church.

At the end of the war the congregation wanted to remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives. Enough money was raised to commission the only commemorative stained glass window in Romsey.

To continue the research from 2014, the Abbey URC applied for a Heritage Lottery Grant and in 2015 they were awarded a First World War 'Then and now' grant and began to research stories from Romsey throughout the Great War.

In 2016 the Abbey URC have been inviting the town to get involved in their monthly workshops and share their family stories, along with offering the opportunity of help and advice from local genealogist, Sarah Stewart, to research their own projects. All information gathered will be used in upcoming exhibitions.

For further details and information on how to get involved, along with updates on the project, please visit Sarah Stewart BA or contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
