COLDEN COMMON WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed Information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2006

The Colden Common War memorials reside inside the Holy Trinity Church, Colden Common. There are two memorials in the form of metal plaques, one for World War 1 and the other World War 2, affixed to the interior wall. The World War 2 memorial was restored in 1987. The memorials contain the forenames and surnames and the contingent they served with. The names are sorted here into alphabetical order for ease of research and reading. See Paul Goodwin's UK Memorial web site for more photographs.
