Transcription Caroline Clifford

The memorial is within Huntingdon All Saints Church listing the World War parishoners and has, supposedly, 63 names but we have only 55 transcribed. The memorial takes the form of a stained glass window and a stone plaque. The stained glass window depicts the tree of life with numerous saints and images; a dedicatory tablet has been set within a carved wooden frame and is affixed to the north wall of the nave. The memorial was first unveiled in 1920.
