St John the Baptist

War Memorial

With such a densely populated parish it is likely that a significant number were killed in the 1914-1918 war, but there is no record of a memorial in the 1937 inventory.

A public house, The Loggershead, only a few yards from the north side of St John’s did have a war memorial dedicated to the local men who were killed. This memorial has recently been re-housed within St Mary’s Church, the original mother church of St John the Baptist.
