GAYWOOD WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed Information
Compiled and Copyright © Shaz Ann 2018
researched Martin Edwards

The Gaywood war memorial can be found at the road side on the Lynn Road, Gaywood, Kings Lynn. It takes the form of a clock tower built up with stone and terracotta brick work, topped with a wooden roof. It has four faces, each with a lamp. One of the four sides has a tablet dedicated to those who died in the First World War and another side with a tablet dedicated to those involved in the Second World War. There are 27 names listed for World War 1. There are 25 names for World War 2 which have as yet to be transcribed but a list of 27 names has been added here.

Gaywood War Memorial was constructed in 1920 to commemorate all those from Gaywood who gave their lives during the Great War 1914-1918. Designed by Mr J L Carnell ARIBA of Lynn and constructed by Messrs J Medwell and Sons for the sum of £500 to construct the tower, and an additional £200 for the clocks. The memorial was unveiled and dedicated on Sunday 6th March 1921 by Admiral Sir Reginald Constance, GCB, KCMG, CVO. A tablet dedicated to those who fell in the Second World War was added at a later date.

The war memorial was originally positioned at the convergence of Lynn, Wootton and Gayton Roads. It is understood that the clock tower originally stood on circular steps that formed a mini roundabout which was not an integral part of the structure. It had been removed as early as 1965. The clock tower was re-sited in 1989/1990 to its present position, north of Lynn Road, as part of road improvements.
