Burton Green as a Parish did not exist in its present form in either the first or second world wars. Many of the local men living in our area and who joined up came from Westwood Heath, Cromwell Lane, Red Lane, Hob Lane and Crackley, Hurst area. Most would have joined the Warwickshire Regiment. There exists a plaque in honour of those who lost their lives.
Burton Green had its own experiences of war visited our Parish during the second world war, but thankfully no residents were killed when a couple of bombs were dropped.
On Sunday 10 November 2013 at 11am Burton Green Parish Council will lay a remembrance wreath on behalf of the Parish for those who lost their lives.This will take place at the Kenilworth War Memorial.
For those of you who would wish to attend and pay your respects we would love to see you. Thank you.
