About the memorial: The memorial tower clock on the parish church was funded by public subscription to commemorate the lives of the 28 men from Fressingfield who died in WW1. The clock is on the west elevation of the flint clad church tower. The clock is in full working order and keeps very good time. .. The clock was installed in 1921(dedicated 16 October) and was made by G and F Cope of Nottingham, the makers of Wesminster's Big Ben. The chimes were not functioning, but were reinstated in 2017 with support from the village and charitable grants, including a generous donation from the War Memorials Trust. The chimes were specifically funded by the relatives of First Lieutenant Herbert John Fisher who died on 3rd October 1918 aged 32 years. He is buried in Roisel Communal Cemetery. Inside the church there is a memorial noting that the clock is in memory of those who died.
