MARKS TEY (ESSEX) - Roll of Honour

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Transcribed Heather Smith; Researched Martin Edwards 2003

This Memorial is not in it's original site having been moved about 10 years ago. The original site was on the London Road, Marks Tey (the old A12) close to the Methodist Church. It is now sited at the Parish Church of St. Andrews. Much better than its original site which, in spite of being by-passed, is still a very busy area.
