Skeyton – War Memorial

Skeyton’s war memorial is located in front of the village church, commemorating the nine men who lost their lives in the First World War and the three men who lost their lives in the Second World War. The memorial is a listed monument and is in the form of a Celtic cross with the image of a sword.

Perhaps the most noticeable element of this war memorial are the three Allard brothers who died during the First World War, although more on them in a separate post. The memorial was installed here in 1920 and for friends and relatives of those who had died, this is all that they had because bodies of the dead weren’t brought back.
