About the memorial: Painted oak triptych designed by Dorian Webb and constructed under his direction. The centre panel is surmounted by a crown and palm leaves, and the panels on either side list the 48 men educated at St Mary's School Speenhamland (now Speenhamland Primary School) who fell during the Great War. The memorial was dedicated on 14th January 1920 and unveiled in a large schoolroom in the original Victorian School by Mrs Waldron - the donor. That small building still exists, but the school has been enlarged greatly since and the memorial's location is no longer known. Current staff were unaware of its existence (Summer 2016). See Newbury Weekly News 15th January 1920 for an account of the dedication and unveiling, which includes a list of the names inscribed.
