World War 1 & 2 - Detailed information
Compiled & Copyright © Robin Bloore 2019

The Warlingham War memorial faces north on Warlingham Green, Limpsfield Road, Warlingham, Surrey. It takes the form of a three-stepped base surmounted by a square plinth and a figure of a serviceman protecting a mother and child who shelter beneath him. The inscription can be found on the sides of the plinth with an added tablet for the Second World War placed at the base. The memorial was orginally unveiled by Major General Sir Gerald Elliston, K.C.M.G., C.B., 4 December 1921 and rededicated in 1946. Although the memorial bears inscriptions for World War 2 there are 60 names listed for World War 1 only. The memorial was repaired in 2019 and a series of photographs of the restoration are available here.
