First World War memorial, with additions for later conflicts.


Hargrave War Memorial stands on the edge of the churchyard of the Church of All Hallows (Grade II*-listed), beside the main entrance. It comprises a simple, rough-hewn, granite wheel-head cross rising from a tapering plinth set on a square, two-stepped, base.

On the front face of the plinth is inscribed 1914 - 1919/ LET THOSE WHO COME AFTER/ SEE TO IT THAT THESE NAMES/ BE NOT FORGOTTEN/ (10 NAMES). The inscription is rendered in applied metal lettering. A small tablet of a different stone stands on the top step of the base of the memorial, recording men who fell in later conflicts: (1 NAME)/ 1939 – 1945/ (1 NAME)/ SUEZ. This inscription is incised.

The aftermath of the First World War saw the biggest single wave of public commemoration ever with tens of thousands of memorials erected across England. One such memorial was raised within the churchyard of the Church of All Hallows to commemorate the ten local men who died during the conflict. A small tablet was later added to the memorial, to commemorate one serviceman who died during the Second World War and one in Suez in 1954.
