About the memorial: Shortly after the outbreak of war the Gilford and District Comforts Fund for Soldiers and Sailors was formed, and later the Gilford and District Prisoners of War Fund. Subsequent to the signing of the Armistice the activities of these funds came to an end, and it was decided to apply the balance of the money on hand to the erection of a tablet to perpetuate the memories of those who were called upon to lay down their lives. This money was augmented by local collections.The unveiling ceremony of Gilford War Memorial, which has been erected to the memory of the brave men from the district who made the supreme sacrifice in the Great War, was performed by Mrs Upritchard, Elmfield Castle. About 400 men from the locality served with the colours, and of this number 62 lost their lives. The tablet is composed of granite, inlaid with white marble panels, and the names, 62 in number, engraved in the marble and filled with lead. The background is of solid masonry, with a stone finish. The site for the erection of the tablet
