Summary

First World War memorial, 1923.

Description

The war memorial is sited within the churchyard of the church of St Nicholas (Grade II), located to the south of the church. It is of rough-hewn grey granite. On a low square base, an irregular granite block forms the plinth for a plain Latin cross. The western side of the memorial has an inscription on the plinth; it reads IN PROUD AND LOVING MEMORY/ OF/ (5 NAMES) / MEN OF THIS PARISH WHO FELL IN THE/ GREAT WAR 1914-1918./ “THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE”.

History

Stenigot War Memorial was unveiled on 28 February 1923, commemorating five local men who died serving during the First World War. It was constructed by Messrs Mawer Bros of Louth. The dedication and unveiling ceremony began with a service in St Nicholas’ Church. The memorial was unveiled by Colonel Henry Thomas Fenwick CWG MVO DSO.

Reasons for Listing

Stenigot War Memorial, which stands beside the church of St Nicholas, is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Historic interest: as an eloquent witness to the tragic impact of world events on this local community, and the sacrifice it has made in the First World War;
* Group value: with the church of St Nicholas (Grade II);
* Degree of survival: the memorial has not been adapted for commemoration of later conflicts, and thus retains its original design intent.
