FISKERTON WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and Copyright © Bill Ball 2006

There are two sets of memorials for World War 1 and World War 2 and another for RAF Fiskerton all to be found in the parish church of St Clement's, Fiskerton. On the walls of the east end of the nave, either side of the tower, are matching memorials for WW1 and WW2. They are built-up wooden plaques, with incised painted lettering and surrounds with gilt detail. Under the tower, two stone tablets, one for each World War, stand against the wall. They are in temporary storage here, having been previously in the Village Hall, which was burned down. The names on both sets of plaques are the same for each conflict. On the wall of the southern side aisle, there is a slate tablet engraved with the crests of Nos. 49 & 576 Squadrons, RAF, and the words:
