Men of Enderby

There are few events in history which have effected every town, city and village, as that of the Two World Wars.

Enderby was no exception, with 82 men, all with Enderby connections having given their lives for their country in The Great War 1914 - 1918.

The commemoration plaques for the 'Fallen' of both World Wars are situated within the Parish Church in Enderby. A further memorial plaque to the Great War is on the outside of the United Reform Chapel.

The project hopes to build a profile of these men and present the information on the pages within this site as a memorial to them.

It is difficult to say exactly when the first settlers began to establish a settlement in the area, that over 1,000 years evolved into what we now know as Enderby.

There is evidence to suggest that the first settlers in the area were possibly the Romans, with the construction of the Fosse Way, a Roman military road connecting the river Axe in the southwest to Lincoln in the northeast.

This passed relatively closely to Aldeby (the original site of The Church of St. John, Mother Church of Enderby) and Enderby

Between the 4th and 5th centuries the Roman hold on Britain began to decline and by the beginning of the 6th century, the way was left open for land seeking Angles, Saxons and Jute's to invade.

By the start of the 9th century the Danes (Vikings) had invaded Britain and by approximately 850 AD they gained control of most of England.

During this time the Danes settled at Aldeby, this settlement is mentioned in the Domesday book.
of 1086.

The Danes had burnt down the original Anglo-Saxon church, at Aldeby, while raiding, this was rebuilt, after they adopted the Christian faith and consisted of a small rectangular nave and an apse at the east end where the alter stood, this church would have held no more than 50 people.
