DEEPING ST NICHOLAS AND TONGUE END WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and Copyright © Michael Peck 2008

Deeping St Nicholas has several memorials around both exterior and interior to the church of St Nicholas. The exterior memorial takes the form of a three stepped base surmounted by a square plinth, a tapering shaft and a wheel cross with the inscription on the sides of the plinth and the 6 o'clock face of the base of the shaft. There is a three quarter length relief carving of a figure of St, George on the rear face of the cross. There are 31 names listed for World War 1 and 4 for World War 2. Within the church are memorials and Rolls of Honour from from Tongue End Methodist Church, Tongue End, that were moved here when the church was closed and subsequently sold. The memorial from Tongue End is in the form of a plain, rectangular, grey marble tablet, with incised inscription in black lettering; a wreath is carved at the top, centre, of the plaque and contains 14 names; it resides in the porch. THe stanined glass window and a wall plaque are dedicated to the same man who fell in World War 1 from the RAMC.
