WILSFORD WAR MEMORIAL

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

Within the church of St Mary, Wilsford are several memorials and Rolls of Honour. There are 106 names handwritten on a scroll within a wooden frame listing 106 names, some of who died. There is a four light stained glass window with tracery windows with an inscription running across the bottom of all four lights to honour the 22 men who gave their lives in World War 1; this was unveild on 27th June 1920 by Brigadier General R L Aldercon. There is also a Roll of Honour in a wooden frame commemorating the 62 people who served in World War 2, two of which died; the roll also indicates who were taken prisoner of war and who was wounded.
