About the memorial: A simple stone block, a Latin cross inscribed on one face, with a sloping top on which is a plaque of darker colour with the dedication and names. Until 2014 Tuddenham had no memorial to it's men who died in the Great War of 1914-1918, but a group of residents rallied support in the village and managed to raise the £2,500 needed for a permanent monument. It was unveiled by 71-year-old Barry Seamark, the grandson of one of the men it commemorates. A young bugler from the Boys Brigade played The Last Post at the service, and representatives for the Royal British Legion also attended. The new memorial includes two men missing from the book , James LYES DCM and James TAYLOR.
