About the memorial: An article entitled ‘A Munificent Gift’ that appeared in a local paper August 1922 (not sure which one and the exact date) described the opening of the parish hall, a gift to the community by Lord Heneage. In this article there was a section regarding the memorial tablet, which read: “On the invitation of the Rector, the company then proceeded to the outside of the building for the unveiling by Mr Arthur Johnson, an ex soldier, of a memorial tablet in memory of the men from this village who fell during the Great War. The tablet has been placed in a prominent position facing the roadway, and the inscription, which can be seen distinctly by those who pass, is as follows: ‘In grateful memory of John Thomas Anderson, Frederick Prescott, George Edward Prescott, Thomas Henry Tharratt, who fell in the Great War, 1914-1918′. The Rev Temperley said that now they had got a village hall it was fitting that the first thing to be done should be the unveiling of the memorial which was intended to perpetuate the memory of the men from South Willingham who had fallen in the war. After the memorial had been unveiled by Mr Johnson, it was dedicated ‘in grateful and honoured memory of those who fell’ and suitable prayers were offered” http://www.south-willingham.org/history-2/future-events/first-world-war/
