  • First World War (1914-1918)
About the memorial: It is proposed to place a stained glass window in Whaplode Church, as a memorial to those men of the place who laid down their lives in the Great War. Designs submitted by Mr. Temple Moore in connection therewith have been approved by the Committee. It is proposed to rebuild the stonework in what is believed to be in accordance with the original plans of the church, and at the bottom the names of the fallen heroes will be carved in the stone. Judging from the designs the memorial promises to be beautiful in character, and a fitting way of perpetuating the memory of those gallant lads who made the great sacrifice in defence of their country and their friends. Subscription lists for the fund are now open and it is to be hoped that the fund will meet with the success it richly deserves. The Lincolnshire, Boston & Spalding Free Press, Tuesday, June, 8th 1920. WAR MEMORIAL- The Whaplode War Memorial which takes the form of a stained glass window on the south side of the Church near the tower, is being erected by Messes John Thompson and Sons, of Peterborough, and is nearing completion.
