SPALDING WORLD WAR ONE MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and Copyright © Jonathan Smith 2007
Researched Martin Edwards

The Spalding War Memorial to those killed in the First World War stands in the gardens of the important medieval building on Churchgate, called Ayscoughfee Hall, overlooking the ornamental lake and the extensive gardens, the memorial is in the form of open fronted, and sided, building with the roll of honour on the stone rear wall was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, famous for his design of the Cenotaph in London. Sir Edwin is said to have visited the gardens and chose the site for the war memorial. Among those remembered is Francis Walter Stafford McLaren, who was Member of Parliament for the Spalding Division from 1910 until his death in 1917. The dedication is separated from the roll of honour by two carved and painted stone flags. The memorial does not include a roll of honour for those killed in the Second World War - this roll of honour is in the neighbouring St Mary and St Nicolas Church. There is an additional memorial stone with dedication to those who gave their lives in both wars. There are 249 names on the memorial plus the lone additional stone.

As this memorial was being researched it became evident that there was no definitive reason why a name was included or excluded. There were many men who were born or resident in Splading not included. As you will see below there were two brothers, one included and one not. Interestingly a lot of the names listed here enlisted in Luton. These men initially enlisted into the 4th Lincolns, the battalion having decided on 4th August 1914 that volunteers would only be enlisted at Lincoln. Thus many lads decided to hold off enlisting until later. On 28th August 1914, men from the outlying towns of the county (Spalding, Stamford, Grantham, etc) who wanted to enlist were encouraged to travel down to Luton, where the battalion was now based to enlist.

The imposing entrance of honey-coloured stone, quarried at Jungshai, near Hyderabad, is one part of a dual memorial the other part being in Delhi, to 25,000 men of the army and air forces of undivided India who died during the 1939-1945 War while on service in nonoperational zones. The cemeteries in which they lie buried, and which have since been found impossible to maintain adequately, are as follows : ABBOTTABAD CEMETERY ATTOCK NEW CEMETERY CAMPBELLPORE CEMETERY GHARIAL CEMETERY GHORA DAKKA NEW CEMETERY HYDERABAD NEW CEMETERY (SIND) JHELUM CEMETERY KALABAGH CEMETERY KULDANA NEW CEMETERY LAHORE CANTONMENT CEMETERY LAHORE (TAXALI GATE) CEMETERY LYALLPUR EUROPEAN CEMETERY MARI-INDUS RAILWAY CEMETERY MIANWALI CEMETERY MULTAN CANTONMENT CEMETERY MURREE NEW CEMETERY MURREE OLD CEMETERY RAWALPINDI (WEST RIDGE) CEMETERY RISALPUR CEMETERY SIALKOT EAST CEMETERY SIALKOT WEST CEMETERY SRINAGAR (SHEIKH BAGH) CEMETERY UPPER BHARIAN CEMETERY UPPER TOPA NEW CEMETERY.
