CARLTON ST MARY WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © 2001 Martin Edwards

There are two sets of memorials in Carlton, the first set are in St Mary the Virgin Church, Turvery Road, Carlton. These memorials are on the left hand wall as you look down the aisle of the church. One is of bronze and carries ten names of those who gave their lives in World War 2 and the other is a wooden plaque with the names of four men who gave their lives. These plaques are almost identical to those in the Baptist Church which carries the same number of names for both wars.
