AUBOURN AND HADDINGTON WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 & Crimean War - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and Copyright © Bill Ball 2021

The memorial is located outside St Peter's Church, Harmston Road, Aubourn. It takes the form of a stone cross surmounting a tapering square which is set on a stone column that in turn stands on a square-plinth that bears the inscription and the World War 1 names (7 names). The whole stands on a four-stepped base with the World War 2 inscription inset into the top step (1 name). The memorial masons were Messrs. A. J. Tuttle. The memorial was dedicated and unveiled 16 October 1920. Within St Peter's Church are two further memorials in the form of marble tablets with incised black lettering, one to the man who is named for World War 2 on the external memorial and the other to a man who gave his life during the Crimean War.
