The Fallen from Smisby
Thanks to more research by Garry Margerrison we now have finally identified the details for all of the fallen that we remember at Smisby. We now have not just their rank and service numbers but where they died and where they are buried including those from WW2 on who we previously had no information.
St James' Church
WELCOME TO SMISBY ST. JAMES
Hello and welcome to the web pages for our ancient village church.
St. James Church stands on a hill above the village and has been a place of Christian worship for more than 900 years.
There are four churches in the group we belong to – Melbourne, Smisby, Stanton by Bridge and Ticknall.
Our Rector is the Revd. Steve Short who leads a ministry team of Clergy and Readers.
