Hawling War Memorials

Two memorials exist, both at St. Edward Church, Hawling. There are considerable differences between the stone memorial in the lynch gate and the Roll of Honour  in the church.

Lynch Gate to St Edwards Church.

To the glorious memory of those men connected with this parish who gave their lives for their country in the great war 1914-1918
[Erected in 1920]


This memorial lynch gate was restored in 1978 in thankfulness for those who served in the second world war and to commemorate the Jubilee of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II

Roll of Honour

There is a fairly plain Roll of Honour in the church, but sadly not currently on display. As a passing caretaker kindly got this out for me to briefly look at I only recorded the names, units and remarks (an outside chance the header might have explained the discrepancy with the stone slab).
