About the memorial: Employees of the South Woodford Royal Mail Sorting Office who served in the First World War were commemorated on a Roll of Honour unveiled in June 1919. The Roll of Honour was possibly produced on paper or wood. The memorial appears to have been lost when the sorting office was closed and a new one built in 1948. Fortunately, an article published in the Woodford Times newspaper in 1919 marked the occasion and published the names of the sixteen men featured on the memorial, three of whom had died in the conflict. ‘There was an impressive little ceremony on Wednesday morning at the Woodford and South Woodford Postmen’s Sorting Office Marlborough Road… [which] unveiled a beautiful roll of honour of the names of the men of that district who have borne a great part in the war. Of the 26 men comprising the full staff, 16 went out and three of them lost their lives – W. Lynch and J.H Russell (killed in action) and W.H. J Godfrey (died of wounds).
