KING'S LYNN POST OFFICE WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Detailed Information
Compiled and Copyright © Norma Chaplin 2009

The King's Lynn Post Office Roll of Honour lists both those Post Office workers who served, and those killed, in World War 1. At some point in time it was put into storage in the Post Office and re-instated in 1980 (see Dedication details below). When the main Post Office in Baxter’s Plain was closed, it was moved to entrance of sorting office, Austin Fields. The Roll of Honour is housed in a glass case and this transcription was taken from the photograph which was taken with the case in place which has aused inevitable errors in transcription. The names here have been sorted into alphabetical order for ease of research and reading.
