Compiled and copyright © 2001 Martin Edwards
All Saints Church, Odell is a glass framed, with wood gilt surround
Roll of Honour mounted on an oak lectern. It lists 8 names for World
War 1 and 3 names for World War 2. There are two plaques that listed
those who died in World War 1 and World War 2. The first is a brass
plate on black marble surround mounted upon which is a cross with crown
listing the 8 World War 1 names. The second is a strone tablet listing
the names of those who died in World War 2. These transcriptions were
taken through the window as was the photograph. NOT all the wording
has been transcribed as it was difficult to read through dirty glass.
