TIVETSHALL ST MARGARET WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Detailed Information
Compiled and Copyright © Eric Kirby 2005

The St Margaret Memorial will hopefully soon be refurbished; currently there are 9 names listed (these are marked M). As well as the memorial there is also a plaque inside the church listing the above fallen of WW1 - note that Leonard J L Crane is not listed on the internal plaque for some unknown reason. This also list those names commemorated on the St Mary Memorial; those on the plaque are marked P. A second plaque recording two casualties of WW2 from the Parish is also inside the church.
