SOUTHBOROUGH WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information

The Southborough village war memorial is located at the crossroads of London Road and Church Road, on the village green, Southborough. The memorial was first unveiled and dedicated on 13 February 1921, the masons being Messrs. A Burslem & Sons. The memorial is in the form of a stone cross mounted on an octagonal plinth. There are 207 names for World War 1, 44 for World War 2 and one for the Korean War.

There is a book available entitled "Southborough War Memorial: The Stories of Those Commemorated" by Judith Johnson which is a nique record of the two hundred and fifty-three men and one woman associated with Southborough and High Brooms, Tunbridge Wells, Kent who are commemorated on the Southborough War Memorial, the majority of whom lost their lives in the two World Wars of the twentieth century. It recalls details of their lives and their final resting-places, as well as some of the memories of those they left behind.
