IRTHLINGBOROUGH WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and Copyright © 2004 - Martin Edwards

The memorial stands on the main Finedon Road that runs through Irthlingborough. The World War 2 names are on the top level and World War 1 on the bottom. There are several duplications of surname and initial for World War 1 and two entries that appear on two separate panels out of sequence which appear to be in error as they are the last two names on one plate and the first two names on the next plate.
