Inscription

To the memory of those enployees of Horatio Myer & Co.Ltd. who laid down their lives in the Great War, 1914 - 1918.
{A list of 13 names in alphabetical sequence - see Subjects commemorated.}

At some point between the 60s and 80s the memorial was moved to the company's Cambridgeshire site. When the business was sold Jonathan Myer, great-grandson of the firm’s founder, arranged for the memorial to return to its home.

Naomi Klein has researched all the names on this war memorial in addition to many more on other Vauxhall war memorials for her book These were our sons.
