Birtenshaw lost twenty-two men. The church has now been demolished, but the stained glass window which commemorates these men, as well as an interesting tiled memorial remembering the one hundred and thirteen other men from the church who served are preserved in Bolton Museum stores. These links are to a description and photographs.
