HARTLEY WINTNEY WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed Information
Compiled and copyright © John Elliott 2013

A stone memorial with three curved steps leading up to a central cross with low curved side walls on which are recorded the names of those commemorated from both world wars. At either end are pillars on which are inscribed the various locations where the men served.

The memorial is located next to St John’s church on Fleet Road, Hartley Wintney. The church contains a Roll of Honour for both World Wars and a fine wood panelled Memorial Chapel to commemorate the First World War casualties. Each name is inscribed in a separate wood panel and the inscription along the top of the wood panelling reads ‘Grant them O Lord eternal rest and let everlasting light shine upon them. May they rest in peace, Amen’.

Two of the men on the war memorial are not commemorated in the Memorial Chapel and there is one additional name in the Memorial Chapel which is not on the war memorial. The details below are for all those commemorated with a note if their names do not appear on both memorials.
