Lest We Forget
In Memory of those who Served and Those who Fell


This memorial was completed in April 2013 and initially planned to be installed in May, however there was a delay and it was finally installed on 18th December 2013.  The chip on the corner of the base caused during installation is due to be repaired 'when the weather improves'.
Thanks to Elizabeth Stocker for this information.

Hello, I am currently submitting the Thurlstone War Memorial to the War Memorials Trust website and wondered if I might have permissiom to use your photograph. I think that it is better than any that I have. Many thanks. Elizabeth Stocker

Hi Elizabeth

Yes, that's fine with me.  It was actually taken by my husband Nigel Croft, so please credit him.

Thanks,
Linda
