Description: Memorial Homes/Alms Houses
Conflicts:
  • First World War (1914-1918)
  • Second World War (1939-1945)
About the memorial: The memorial in the east Cambridgeshire village of Burwell is a war memorial cottage with a roll of honour incorporated into the gable wall of the cottage, which stands at 19 The Causeway. The house was formerly occupied by the District Nurse. The roll of honour consists of incised and black painted lettering on limestone panels, with inset tile decorations. The World War I names are recorded alphabetically on three panels. At some point a small panel has been added below the original centre panel to record five additional names. The lettering is in a matching style and font, but a slightly different stone was used. Two smaller panels which exactly match the original have been added on either side of the World War I panels to record the World War II casualties. A stone planter runs along the wall below the memorial. There is a cross in brick built in to the gable end above the memorial.
