Tring was one of the first towns to erect a war memorial, only 16 days after the Armistice. It was unveiled on 27th November by General Sir William Robertson, DSO. The Inns of Court, who were based in Berkhamsted, made up the guard of honour, and also provided a band. At this early date it was impossible to be sure that all the names that should be included were known and the names were added a year later in alphabetical order.
