War Memorial 1920

There appears to be a discrepancy
in the WW1 records concerning the names on the
War Memorial, Suffolk County Council Roll of Honour and those listed on Ancestry.co.uk

The names listed on these pages may not be accurate as they came from several sources.

The War Memorial was constructed in 1920 and erected by local builder Stanley Deaves. The woodwork was carried out by Fred Beard.

Interesting to note that the railings were still in place in 1943.
I suspect they were replaced by the wall we see today. when the WW2 memorial stones were layed.
