Fakenham – War Memorial

The town’s war memorial was unveiled in August 1921 to mark those who had died during the First World War.

There are 96 names of those who died during the First World War, 27 names for the Second World War, 2 names of those who died during the Korean War and 1 name from the Iraq War in 1954. There’s a full list of those who died at http://www.roll-of-honour.com/Norfolk/Fakenham.html with five names having been added later (two from World War Two and those who died during the Korean and Iraq conflicts). Details of these five men are listed at http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/the-heroic-tales-behind-the-new-names-on-fakenham-war-memorial-1-2963865.

It’s a nicely presented war memorial and it’s centrally located in Fakenham.
