About the memorial: A granite column erected in memory of the gallant men of the Parish of Althorpe who fell in the Great War was unveiled last Sunday afternoon. Out of a population of about 650, eighty left the village and served in H. M. forces. Sixteen fell in the war and the memorial was erected by the ex-servicemen, at a cost of over £80. The memorial has been supplied by Messrs. Sissons and Son, of Epworth. Though simple in design, this column of unpolished on a stone and concrete base, is very appropriate and effective. It is situated near the Memorial Hall, a short distance back from the footpath, with a seat round the boundary fence, and two chestnut trees, one on either side to provide shade to any persons who may care to rest there awhile.
