After the First World War memorials went up in towns and villages across the country - and these were often supplemented by memorials in churches, and sometimes associated with large employers.
This is a temporary page, where relevant references are being brought together prior to writing a proper text.
The following pictures show the town war memorial at Royston, adjoining the churchyard of the parish church, and the plaque in the Kneesworth Street Congregational Church.
