About the memorial: Six Mile Bottom war memorial is on the grass verge between the playing field and the A1304 London Road. It was unveiled in 1924. The memorial takes the form of a rough hewn Latin cross bearing a sword, upon a rounded plinth on a square granite base all within a low granite post and chain fence. The proximity to the road means that together with the effect of over hanging trees the lead lettering is quickly rendered unreadable. This nearness to the road led to the memorial being demolished in 2003 by a car. The memorial was re-constructed on the same spot. Comparing photographs it appears that the name of C.Bishop was added after the initial; unveiling.
