World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © 2004 - Transcribed Carolynn Langley; researched Lynda Smith

The village of Marsworth is near Tring and Aston Clinton the memorial is in front of church of All Saints. Some letters have fallen out of memorial and are covered in lichen. The inscription is on all four sides of base. Inside the church, on the left of the nave, is a hand written roll of honour, highly decorative in black and white, that lists both fallen and those who served. The two lists of the fallen for World War 1 are the same.
