About the memorial: At the end of the Great War the village of Little Baddow decided to commemorate its loss by giving to the living by purchasing the Old (village) Hall and adding a memorial arch to serve as a porch into the building which would be used by the community for concerts, dances and parties. A wooden board containing sixteen names of those lost was mounted inside the hall. Disaster struck in 1959 when the hall was destroyed by fire and the roll of honour lost. The arch was however undamaged and was relocated as a standalone structure in the grounds of the new and renamed Memorial Hall, where it stands today. An appeal has been launched within the village to raise funds to have the Roll of Honour reinstated within the arch itself. Stone plinths inscribed with the names of those closely associated with the village who gave their lives in both World Wars and other subsequent hostile Actions that have arisen or may occur will be added, thus preserving them in one place which is openly accessible to all.
