SUTTON-UNDER-BRAILES WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Simon Bartlett 2014

The parish of Sutton-under-Brailes, with a population of less than 100, is separated from the centre of Stourton by just a couple of fields. After the Wesleyan Methodist chapel at Stourton was closed (it was later converted into a private dwelling), the memorial to members of its congregation was taken to the Parish Church of St Thomas à Becket at Sutton. This relocation in 1986 may seem a little surprising in view of the fact that only four of the nineteen men on the chapel memorial were from Sutton families. A stone memorial was also erected on the village green to two soldiers who died for their country. A further Roll of Honour exists in Sutton Church.
