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, but currently the chimes do not work. The clock was installed in 1921 and was made by G and F Cope of Nottingham, the makers of Wesminster's Big Ben. The chimes were specifically funded by the relatives of First Lieutenant Herbert John Fisher who died on 3rd October 1918. Inside the church there is a memorial noting that the clock is in memory of those who died.
