About the memorial: This is not a war memorial but a CWGC cemetery feature see the Protection tab. It is under the care of the CWGC whose graves and memorials are offical commemorative sites as opposed to local or community war memorials created by public subscription which are the focus of this website. See the What is a war memorial section of this website for further information. The Stone of Remembrance was erected for the 829, (inclusive of three unknown service personnel), from World War Two. This plot which is for RAF personnel was established in 1942. It contains 773 graves. Service personnel from bases in nearby Norfolk and Suffolk, as well as further afield in Lincolnshire, are buried here. The Stone of Remembrance – unveiled by Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord Tedder in July 1951 – stands near the centre of the plot. A WW2 - General Service plot, contains casualties from all the services, mostly incurred in the early years of the war.

As a conservation charity which gives grants War Memorials Trust can support repair and conservation works that follow best conservation practice. Grants are awarded from funds raised by the charity so money available is limited and is therefore focused on eligible war memorials.

War Memorials Trust’s Definition of a war memorial for funding purposes helpsheet explains which war memorials are eligible and ineligible for funding.

As a charity, War Memorials Trust relies on voluntary donations and every contribution, no matter how large or small, makes a really big difference to our work. Your donation will help protect and conserve war memorials for future generations so please support War Memorials Trust’s work.
