History

The war memorial in Flyford Flavell was erected following the First World War, to commemorate the sacrifice made by the fallen of that conflict. It appears that the base of the memorial may be of older, possibly medieval origin, and may be a re-used base of a former village cross. The memorial was cleaned and the names re-cut in 2014, and at this time the name of a fallen soldier of the Second World War was added. The memorial was re-dedicated on the 6 September 2014.
