Village War Memorial

Set in the middle of the village, beside the main road, at the top of the Hill, lies our War Memorial.

It is a simple memorial to honour those villagers who died during both the Great War and World War II.

Apologies for the poor quality images: I will replace them with better ones when I am able.

Great War (1914 – 1919)

The general dedication on our memorial.

Notice the ending date – 1919 – rather than the more usual 1918. This is when the Treaty of Versailles was signed (actually on 28 June 1919).

The names of those who fell.
