The war memorial to the men of Chingford who fell in the Great war was erected in 1921. The inscription reads: In grateful remembrance of the men of Chingford, who died in the service of their country in the Great War, 1914-1918. “We are the dead...To you, from failing hands, we throw the torch; Be yours to hold it high.”

The information gathered about each of the men has been gathered from a variety of sources and public records Such as the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, archive material and plain old fashioned research. If one of the men listed on this memorial is a relative of yours, or you have additional information that you would like added onto their own Book Of Remembrance page, then please by all means contact me and I shall add it on.
Apart form the men commemorated on the Chingford War Memorial I wanted a place whereby I could remember and share details, of other casualties of the Great War. Our database is growing all the time so check back often! Check out our News Page for the latest updates and success stories!
Unfortunately there was not enough room on the memorial to add the names of those who gave their lives in World War II. Below the main panel is inscribed "And those who lost their lives 1939 - 1945". We have created a book of honour so that those people may be remembered too. If you would like to add your relatives details then contact me or view the World War II casualties here.
