CHERRY HINTON WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © 2001 Dave Edwards & Richard Hoye

Cherry Hinton war memorials are to be found within St Andrew's Parish Church. The First World War memorial is a wooden plaque inside the church while the Second World War names are listed on a framed scroll nearby. There are 44 names listed for World War 1 and 22 for World War 2. In 1949 a line of ornamental cherry trees were planted by The Women's Institute as a living memorial to local servicemen who were killed in World War 2; in 2002 the cherry trees were removed to make way for bollards on the grqass verge; the council are committed to replacing them with a similar species.

To the Glory of God
and in loving and grateful memory of
the men from this parish who
laid down their lives.

Lance Sergeant, Claude Leopold Beaumont, was sitting in the trenches somewhere to the west of Gonimecourt, in Belgium, on the 30th of June 1916 listening to the thunderous roar of the guns that had been bombarding the German lines continuously since 0700 hours on the 24th of June, he was part of the Third Army being directed by 1st Viscount Edmund Henry Hynman Allenby. In the final sixty five minutes before zero hour, no fewer than two hundred and twenty four thousand and two hundred and twenty one shells were fired at the Enemy lines, and ten huge mines were detonated below the enemies strongpoints. As soon as the bombardment ceased, the attac.k by the allied troops began, Claude was ordered up over the top of his trench to start his attack, the Germans came up out of their deep underground bunkers and manned the machine guns, they could not beleive their eyes when they saw all these lines of troops half walking half running towards them, they just squeezed the triggers of the machine guns and kept firing. British losses at the end of the first hour were 30,000, by nightfall the British army had lost 60,000 men, the greatest loss in any one day of it's entire history.

The body of Claude Leopold Beaumont was found many years later, approximately 1928/29, when the War Graves Commission was engaged in clearing up the French and Belgian battlefields, and was identified by a locket found on it. His remains are now buried in the Cabaret Rouge Cemetary, in Souchez, France, far from Gommecourt, where he was killed.
