Knapton – St. Peter and St. Paul’s Church (War Memorial)

This war memorial is located in front of the village’s church and was installed here in 1919. There was a grant of £273 provided for by the War Memorials Trust in 2010, which was used to clean up the lead lettering which had become hard to read.

There are seven names on the war memorial from the First World War:

Tom Colin Barcham

Percy William Swann

George Turner

Douglas Lambert

Albert John Mace

George Wild

Robert Christmas Yaxley

Another three names were added to the side of the memorial following the end of the Second World War:

Frederick Watts

Thomas BB Wood

Sydney E Woollsey
