Patrington War Memorial Newly Listed
Early First World War Memorial
Patrington War Memorial is an early First World War Memorial, erected before the end of the conflict. The erection of memorials in the midst of the conflict was considered controversial by some but by 1917 the desire among communities for some form of commemoration was clear. Patrington War Memorial was unveiled on 10 November 1917.
When the memorial was unveiled, it had the names of 89 men from the village who were serving in the First World War. It now has 110 names. 87 of the men served and returned. 23 of the men died.
