About the memorial: The WW1 Roll of Honour is wall mounted inside the church of St Peter and St Paul, Bourne. It consists of a dark coloured wooden box with 2 opening half doors, however these doors are now stuck in the open position. The box is shallow in depth and is oblong shaped, with the long sides mounted vertically. Two half doors are hung on the box, one to each side of it. At the bottom of the box is a lip which protrudes out from the background and sides but which would be flush with the doors if they were shut. Beneath this is a plain wooden oblong of the same wood as the box, and beneath that a small shelf which at the time of recording held a small metal vase. Above the box is a shaped section of identical wood, both edges of which slope slightly outward, and above this a triangular section and upon this is written, in gold lettering, 'For God, King and Country'. Above this section is a inverted V shaped roof arrangement which ends just beyond the outer edges of the triangular section beneath it. There is a metal cross in the centre section of the box, the words 'Greater love hath no man than this' are written in red above the horizontal arm of the cross, extending to both sides of the vertical arm. There are names recorded upon the left half door, black lettering but with the first letters (and initials) in red, the centre section below the horizontal arm of the cross and to each side of the vertical arm of it and the right half door. The words 'The heroic dead' are in red beneath the centre section list of names. Dimensions - The box section is 0.76m high and 0.54m wide, the triangular section above is 0.23m high. The plain wood beneath is 0.23m high. Each half door is 0.76m high by 0.26m wide.
