Restoration of William Shrewsbury family graves

History enthusiast and Parish Councillor Elaine Pritchard became interested in William Shrewsbury after attending the Stretton school named after him. When she saw his grave in St Mary’s churchyard looking the worse for wear she asked the Parish Council if it could be restored as a tribute to a man who achieved so much in his 40 years as Stretton’s headteacher. That restoration work has now been completed. Here, Elaine writes about this remarkable man who was loved by generations of Stretton people for the start in life that he gave them.
