  • First World War (1914-1918)
About the memorial: The Schoolroom in this pretty little village was opened on Monday evening by Major Rawnsley as a War Memorial Institute and Recreation-room, and although only open occasionally each week will certainly prove beneficial to the life of the village. The furniture for the room has been given by two ladies of the parish, and Miss Hasnip has given three hanging lamps. One female and two males lost their lives on War service, these being Nurse Hasnip, Philip Belton and John Sewel [sic], and photographs of all three were unveiled at the opening ceremony. A public tea was held, and a concert wound up the proceedings. Louth Standard 16th December 1922. [Well] On making enquires from the Parish Clerk as to whether the above was still in existence, was informed “The schoolroom is now a private residence” When the schoolroom was sold off is not known, nor what became of any artefacts which may have been in the building, since the only thing the present owners found when they brought the property was the dedication with smashed frame in an envelope, which they had restored, and it is now on display in the bungalow. The parish clerk scanned a photograph from a publication called ‘LN13 Our War Memorials’ produced by the Alford WW1 Memorial Group in 2014. the website address on the back is now defunct.
