CODICOTE PEACE MEMORIAL HALL WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Robert Dye 2006

The Peace Memorial Hall, High Street, Codicote, has a plaque of incised concrete on the front wall above the Main Entrance. Inside the PMH, as it is usually known, are two Memorial Boards listing those who served in the Forces during the two World Wars. The PMH has its own website www.codicote-pmh.org. The Two Memorial Boards in the PMH were partially repainted and varnished in the late 1970’s. The WW1 Board lists the Name, Initials, Regiment and most times, the Rank, of each person. It is in five columns totalling 248 names. It is not in any alphabetical order. The WW2 Board list the names in nearly alphabetical order and includes the women who served in the Forces listed in Column 5. It lists the Name, Initials, Rank and Regiment for nearly all the people. There are 198 names. A set of four small symbols were used to indicate whether the person was Killed in Action, Wounded, Discharged or was a Prisoner of War. See also Codicote St Giles Memorial.
