About the memorial: To perpetuate the memory of those who fell in the Great War, the residents of West Ashby have erected an appropriate memorial in the churchyard. The memorial, which was unveiled and dedicated on Sunday afternoon in the presence of a large congregation, is a Calvary cross, and is placed near the main entrance of the parish churchyard of All Saints’. The foundation is of concrete, and upon a stone slap is a square base of Clipsham stone bearing the names of the fallen and a suitable inscription. From this base springs a fluted shaft, on the top of which at the front is the Cross of Calvary, and the dying Lord, and at the rear the Blessed Virgin, the Mothers of |Sorrows. The memorial rises to a height of 14 feet, and was designed by Mr Wilfred \bond, and executed by Messrs. F. Bell and Sons, Horncastle.

“In memory of these West Ashby men who died in the War, 1914-1919. May they rest in peace.”

Harry Hundleby. William Moses Albert Harlock. Frank Towle. Reginald Brown. Robert Sly. Harry Williams. William Hodgson. George Newstead. Alexander Hanson
