COVEHITHE WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2009

Covehithe church fell into disrepair many years ago and a smaller church was built within the ruins. The war memorial appears in the churchyard as a plain cross surmounting a rough hewn plinth with a plaque at the front. There are four names listed by forename and surname for World War 1 only. There are also two Rolls Of Service hanging in the church.
