WORCESTER, ST STEPHEN'S - WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © 2004 - Transcribed Sandra Taylor; researched Martin Edwards

The memorial stands outside St Stephen’s Church on the Droitwich Road, Worcester. It comprises three octagonal tiered steps supporting a stone base with Christ on the cross above. Some of the memorial is weathered and unreadable, consequently some names appear with ?'s as they were hard to decipher. Hopefully we will be able to decipher these as time goes by.
