SCOULTON WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed Information
Compiled and Copyright © Transcribed and researched Margaret Marham 2005

The War Memorial is on the left of the path when walking down towards the church from the church gate. Sadly the inscriptions are badly worn, so the Parish Council many years ago had the names transcribed on to a brass plaque and put in church on the north wall to commemorate those men from the village who died in the first and second world wars. Details on the memorial contain forename, surname and rank.
