World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and Copyright © Michael Peck 2007

The war village memorial is to be found in the churchyard of All Saints Church, High Road, Hough on the Hill, Lincolnshire and takes the form of a Calvary Cross mounted on a high shaft mounted on a plinth which stands atop a further plinth with walled wings on a two-stepped base all inset into the slope of the churchyard. There are 13 names for World War 1 and 4 for World War 2. The memorial has become weathered and some of the inscription is now illegible.
