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

The war village memorial is to be found in the grounds of St. Luke's Church and takes the form of a Latin Cross mounted on a tapered shaft all on a square base and plinth with the inscription inscribed on two sides of the plinth. There are seven names for World War 1 and none for World War 2. There is weathering to the letters on the memorial and the whole is in need of cleaning.
