World War Crimea & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and Copyright © Bill Ball 2022

There does not appear to be any memorial specifically to World War 1 or World War 2 in the village. There are two plaques within the church and a R.A.F. grave in the churchyard. On the north wall of the nave is an ornate white marble tablet to a man who died in the Crimean War and below it a brass plaque commemorates a World War 2 casualty.
