St Marks WW1 cross

St Marks WW1 cross St Marks WW1 cross

{Running around the top of the base, above the names:}
To the glory of God and the memory of the men from this parish who fell in the Great War, 1914 – 1918.

{118 names listed alphabetically across all 4 faces of the base, with two columns of 15 names on each face, the last column having 13.  See Subjects commemorated for the list.}

{At the front, on the lower plinth, below the names:}
The Lord shall give his people the blessing of peace.

The crucifix is supported on a Tuscan column. Some sections of the list of names are so badly weather-damaged that the names there are partially illegible. 8 names are totally illegible: 2 between Clarsm and Dav; 6 between Fouler and Hewish.  Also some letters are difficult accurately to differentiate (C vs G, J vs S, F vs E vs P, etc.)   We’ve done our best.
