About the memorial: In 2014, as part of the National remembrance of the Centenary of the start of the First World War and following concern raised by some residents in the village that the village did not have a war memorial. A small committee was formed to research the details of the war dead. It was agreed that those who would be remembered would be the soldiers who had resided in the village at the time of enlistment and who were killed in action. Following this research and obtaining a Faculty from the Church DAC at Chelmsford a plaque was placed on the wall of the village church in 2016.

At the top of the scroll is the Royal Coat of Arms, followed by the following - These men of Lindsell whom this scroll commemorates were numbered amongst those who, at the call of King and Country left all that was dear to them, endured hardness, faced danger and finally passed out of the sight of man by the path of duty and self-sacrifice, giving up their own lives that others might live in freedom. Let those who come after see to it that their names be not forgotten. Then at the bottom of the plaque the following is inscribed:- 'They shall not grow old, as we that are left groww old, age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.' Laurence Binyon
