ST ALBANS, LOWER DAGNALL STREET WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2006

The memorial at 31 Lower dagnal Street has been defaced so that none of the original names can be read. It is supposed to have contained 14 names from probably Temperance Street, Spicer Street, College Place and Welclose Street as these are not contained on any of the other memorials and surround the memorial site. By elimination and probability, the following names appear likely to have been included on the memorial.
