A MOVING tribute to all the young men from Redditch who sacrificed their lives during the First World War has been set up in the town.

The project, part of a national event marking 100 years since the end of the First World War, is inside St Stephen’s Church in the town centre.

It commemorates the 37 soldiers whose names are on a memorial wall just inside the church.

The men are represented in the pews by 12 seated see-through silhouettes and researched histories.

Church warden Bethan Craner said: "The idea is to return those soldiers to the spaces where they belong, in their home towns.

"It’s a very moving project by the charity Remembered which supports the Armed Forces community. St Stephen’s is so proud to be a part of this national event in preparation for the 100 years celebration of the end of WW1."

The doors of the church are open and the installation will be there until after the Remembrance Service on November 11.

Bethan added: "Just pop in and take a look. Prepare to be intrigued - and greatly moved."
