CROMER WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Detailed Information
Compiled and Copyright © Transcribed & Researched Lynda Smith - 2004
additional information Martin Edwards

The War memorial stands in the churchyard of Cromer parish church. The dedication and names of the casualties are carved on small panels all the way round the memorial, and as such involved many photographs. Far too many to display on this website. If anyone would like a scan of their own relative’s name, please contact the webmaster.

Photographs Copyright © Lynda Smith 2004

To the Glory of God
In Honoured and loving memory of the men of this Parish
Who fell in the Great War 1914 – 1919 and in thanksgiving
To God for their comrades whose lives were spared.
Their name liveth for evermore.
