The Cambridgeshire Times of 1920/21 details the unveiling of the Manea Primitive Methodist Chapel memorial. Most of the men named (about 10 to 12) are on the main Manea memorial, but there were perhaps four or five who were not neither are they on other local memorials. This memorial was sold with the chapel and is now in private hands. Fortunately Barry Cundell managed to photograph the memorial prior to the sale.
