About the memorial: Aldbury Peace Memorial Institute was built by public subscription to create a home for those returning from the front after the First World War. The first action of those returning was to create their own tribute to the fallen by raising their names on a slate which is still hung inside the hall. There is a stone on the outside wall to inform passers by of the meaning of this hall but this was added much later. The Hall is now used by the village folk in order to raise revenue to maintain the building which is on good condition. The property is a registered charity and the Trustees plan to open on occasional days from 2018 to show a commemorative display about each of our 26 men who failed to return.

A simple slate frame hung within the building lists all those 26 village men who failed to return after 1918; by those village soldiers who did as a mark of respect to their fallen friends.
