Inscription

AMDG
In loving and honoured memory of the men of Shadwell who gave their lives for King and country in the war 1914 - 1918.
RIP

The lettering was done with the technique which involved lead letters attached through pin holes in the stone. As often happens the lead has been partially lost but the holes mean it is still, just, legible. We have reported this to the War Memorial Trust as requiring some repair.

"They died that we might live." is a quite common inscription on war memorials and sounds like a quotation but we cannot identify a source.
