ODELL ALL SAINTS - Roll of Honour

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

Within All Saints Church, Odell is a glass framed, with wood gilt surround Roll of Honour mounted on an oak lectern. It lists 8 names for World War 1 and 3 names for World War 2. There are two plaques that listed those who died in World War 1 and World War 2. The first is a brass plate on black marble surround mounted upon which is a cross with crown listing the 8 World War 1 names. The second is a strone tablet listing the names of those who died in World War 2. These transcriptions were taken through the window as was the photograph. NOT all the wording has been transcribed as it was difficult to read through dirty glass.
