ROCKINGHAM WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Paul Johnson on behalf of Northamptonshire FHS 2009

The Rockingham war memorial is to be found with St Nicholas church, Rockingham. It takes the form of a wooden board with a brass plaque affixed, the central feature is the Crucifixion and the border is decorated with leaves and flowers. There are 8 names for World War 1 and 1 for World War 2. In the vestry is a further plaque inscribed with the names of men (presumably) from Rockingham who served in the armed services during the First World War. The figures after each name are presumed to be the year of enlistment of the individual concerned.
