EYEWORTH WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © 2002 Martin Edwards

The memorial is inside the parish church of All Saints. It takes the form of a white marble tablet framed in elaborately and irregularly shaped, grey, marble, backboard with black indentations and a wreath centrally with the white tablet inscribed with the dedication and names in black lettering. The memorial was unveiled by Lady Delia Peel and dedicated by Rev. E. D. F. Mann 9 January 1921. (Please note: The photograph and transcription were taken through the stained glass window opposite the plaque and may be inaccurate - the church was locked). There is also a hand written Roll of Honour hanging on the North wall of church interior that was damaged by the damp in the building but has been restored and now hung in a modern glazed frame that lists the men from the village that served in World War 1.
