Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2009

The Hartwell War Memorial stands in the grounds of Hartwell Parish Church, Hartwell. It takes the form of a stone cross with a tapering octagonal shaft; the cross surmounts a square base that bears the inscription incised on slate tablets affixed to it. The whole memorial is set on an octagonal stone base. There are 11 names for World War 1 and 3 for World War 2. The slate panels are replacements for the original carved names on the memorial that had weathered. The memorial was dedicated by the Bishop of Leicester and unveiled by Lt-Col. Sir Hereward Wake 4th December 1920; the builders were Messrs J G Pullen & Sons, the memorial site costing £72.
