About the memorial: This is a brass plaque set in a carved wooden frame measuring 615mm x 535mm overall and it is located on the back (side) wall of the Methodist Chapel in the village. The inscription reads: Notes: The four names listed on this Memorial do not exactly match the names listed on the Roll of Honour (Garthorpe St Mary) as being "At Rest" or "Interred in Holland". Joseph Gilleard, Oswald Harrison and George Laister appear on both lists. George Walter Gilleard appears on the Roll but there is no indication that he lost his life. Robert Smith is listed on the Roll as being "At Rest" and Harry Leeson is listed as "Interred in Holland" but neither is included on the above Memorial.
