Tributes to be paid to a Frodsham hero

TRIBUTES will be paid to one of Frodsham’s World War 1 heroes at the Parish Eucharist service to be held at St Laurence

Able Seaman Ellams’ grave

Church on Sunday, April 22.
Able Seaman Leonard Ellams, who was born and brought up in Volunteer Street, Frodsham was one of the men 583 killed in the Zeebrugge campaign on April 23 1918. He was just 21.
The Royal Navy raided the Belgian port to prevent its continued use as a base for German U-boats.
Able Seaman Ellams was aboard the old cruiser, HMS Vindictive, which led the raid.
He was balloted for the award of the Victoria Cross for his part in the action and full military honours were accorded to him at his funeral.
He is buried in St Laurence churchyard.
Frodsham Town Council’s World War 1 commemoration group will lay a wreath on his grave after the service, which starts at 10am.
Everyone is invited to attend the Service and the wreath-laying.
