We will remember them

Springhill, like many areas, saw man serve in WW1 and some of these men did not return:
Harry Dawson,
James Driver
Harry Hart
Thomas Harvey
Wellington Pilkington
William Plaice
Joseph Taylor
Fred Taylor

Harry Hart was the brother of John Hart who bought the Springhill estate in 1923.

In 2018, to mark the 100th anniversary of the armistice, Rossendale, in common with many other areas, ran a scheme whereby poppies could be affixed to lampposts and dedicated to individuals or groups of servicemen. A number of these were fixed in Springhill or vicinity.

The following poppies are in the wider Higher Cloughfold area :
