HEYDON WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed Information
Compiled and Copyright © Lynda Smith 2003

Heydon is one of less than a dozen privately owned villages in Great Britain. It is situated down a no-through-road to the west of the Corpusty to Horsford road. Picturesque houses surround the village green. The church is situated by the side of the green and next to the gates of Heydon Hall, a large Elizabethan House which became the family home of the Bulwer family in the 17th century.

There are three war memorials in the large Parish Church.

One is a wooden Roll of Honour to men who served in World War 2. (Unfortunately the photograph of this memorial is blurred, so if anyone is visiting the church and could send a photo it will be much appreciated as itcan then be transcribed and researched).

A Marble Memorial lists The Fallen in World War 1 and gives full name, rank and Regiment.

REMEMBER THE LOYAL AND GALLANT MEN OF
HEYDON WHO LAID DOWN THEIR LIVES IN THE
CAUSE OF FREEDOM AND RIGHT DURING THE
GREAT WAR 1914 – 1919
THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE.

The third is a wooden Roll of Honour of men who served in World War 1 – those who died are indicated. The list below is from the Roll of Honour and the names have been listed alphabetically for ease of use.
