World War 1 & 2 - Detailed Information
Compiled and Copyright © Transcribed Mick Tilley; researched Martin Edwards - 2005

The Bungay memorial is adjacent to the main road just outside St Mary's Church (now disused) and takes the form of a Celtic cross with a tapering shaft on a plinth mounted on a two-stepped base; there are 101 names for World War 1 and 37 for World War 2. It was unveiled on Sunday 13th November 1921 by E H Wightman; the architects were Messrs Alec MacDonald & Co. Details of the unveiling can be found in the East Anglain Daily Times 15th November 1921. Inside the church are two plaques: (a) a 1914/18 plaque that lists just those men from the parish of St Mary's (entries noted with "(a)" in the list below) and (b) a 1939/45 plaque listing those "associated" with Bungay detailing unit and place/date of death (details included in 2nd table below).
