About the memorial: To perpetuate the memory of the nine local men who were killed in the war, it has been decided to place two mural marble tablets, inscribed with their names, one in the Parish Church and one in the Wesleyan Chapel. Appeals for subscriptions met with a gratifying response, and to clear off the balance a strong committee, under the chairmanship of Mr. Addey, arranged a whist drive, This was held on Thursday, the 4th inst., and was a great success. There were 18 tables, and 24 hands were played. Mr. J. W. Portas was the M.C, and the prize-winners were:-Ladies: Mr. Hewison (playing as a lady), 2 Miss Willoughby, 3 Mr. A. Bonnett (playing as a lady). Consolation prize Miss Jessie Codd; gentlemen: 1 Mr. Flintoft, 2 Mr. W. W. Ely, 3 Mr. Moses Campling, consolation prize Mr. Edward Butters. The proceed were upwards of £9, and will suffice to clear off the small deficit on the cost of the tablets. L&NLA 12th December, 1919. [Swaby] A memorial tablet in marble was unveiled at a special service in St. Nicholas Church, Swaby, on Sunday last, in grateful memory of Albert Barker, Edward Brumpton, George Camplin, Charles R. Cartwright, Roger J. Cholmeley, Harry Elvin, Tom Kitching, Thomas W. Stephenson, George E. Westerby and Edmund Wright, who lost their lives in the great war. The work of making and erecting the tablet has been admirably carried out by Mr. G. F. Skinner, of Alford. L&NLA. 6th March, 1920 [Swaby]
