CATSFIELD ROLL OF HONOUR AND WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Transcribed Janet Graves; Researched Chris Comber 2004

The war memorial stands in the grounds of the parish church of St Lawrence listing the men from World War 1 and 2. Inside the church is a handwritten roll of honour listing those from the parish who served in World War 1 and a book of remembrance to those who died in World War 2. Not all on the memorial appear on the roll of honour and visa versa. Those who died and are listed on the roll of honour are annotated 'R', those on the church memorial '+'. The men who served and died in World War 2 appear on both the memorial and in the book of remembrance but are still annotated in the same way.
