World War 1 - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2006

There are the remains of what is thought to have been another St Alban's street memorial, also in Abbey parish, at the junction of Orchard Street and Abbey Mill Lane. The memorial is placed on the side wall of 9 Abbey Mill Lane, facing Orchard Street. A metal plaque only now exists with oles marking the position where presumably a tablet was affixed. (Details taken from "THE STREET MEMORIALS OF ST ALBANS ABBEY PARISH" by Alice Goodman published by St Alban's and Hertfordshire Architectural and Archaeological Society 1987 ISBN 0 901194 08 5). A new she street plaque was rededicated 24 November 2002.
