Military History

The parish church has a stained-glass window and an alabaster tabled which were dedicated in December, 1920, to the 19 men who died in World War I.

The church also contains a parchment book with the names, records and, in most cases, photographs of everyone from the parish who served in World War I.


Military Records

Michael PECK advises: I recently stumbled across 2 unusual Rolls of Honour (one for WW1 and another for WW2) at Wigtoft (St. Peter and St. Paul Church). They are unusual in that they have a short record of the service of the men (and 2 women) involved and, most importantly, most have a photo attached. Unfortunately the books are beginning to show the effects of damp and the photos are of variable quality,
