ASLACKBY WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and Copyright © Michael Peck 2007

There are a variety of memorials and rolls of honour for Aslackby. These all cover World War 1, none for World War 2. There is a memorial plaque in the church, a clock with plaque and a roll of honour all within the church of St James. The church clock was erected to those who died in World War 1 and there is a oak board inside the south porch on the right hand wall with a dedication. There is a triangular-headed bras plaque mounted within a glass fronted wooden frame with 11 names and a nowy-headed marble tbalet with a moulded border inscription in black lettering with the same 11 names which was unveiled 15th June 1920 by the Earl of Ancaster. Addiitonally there is a handwritten Roll of Honour enclosed in a wooden frame with glass front containg the names of the 42 men who served and returned and the 11 names of those men who were not so lucky.
