About the memorial: Unveiled to mark the Centenary of the end of the First World War in 2018. The stone lists the names, ranks, ages and dates of death of the men from the village lost in the two World Wars. Until this, there was no public Memorial in the village. Researched by Ross Berry-Hopkins. Funded by money raised in the village by Westhouses Residents Action Group, donations, and a grant from Blackwell Parish Council. It stands on the roadside, in front of the Memorial Playing Field, which was bought by the village residents in 1951, as a Memorial field for the men lost in both wars. This title was restored in 2018, after being lost through time and lack of legal registration. The field is now legally protected as a Memorial Field. It is administered and maintained by Blackwell Parish Council.
