About

Heybridge War Memorial is a Grade II Listed memorial made from creamy Portland limestone and stands just inside the gates to the cemetery. Approximately 3m high, it is in the form of a cross with a stone relief sword on the front and an octagonal base and plinth.

The memorial was built by Messrs Wray and Fuller and was unveiled by Brigadier-General R C de Crespigny, on 10 July 1921. The local newspaper recorded his speech, in which he said "those men has answered their country's call and made the greatest sacrifice a man could make". He went on to say: "In 1914 there were under 500 of military age in the parish and of these over 350 served during the war, and 35 of their names appeared on the cross. This was a grand record, and Heybridge might be justly proud of it."

The memorial also lists the names of 18 members of the Armed Forces killed in World War 2. In addition, the cemetery has five Commonwealth War Graves from World War 1 and 2.

Heybridge Cemetery, founded in 1887, has a chapel, a lawn section for full burials and a Garden of Remembrance for cremated remains. The chapel boasts stained glass windows and beautifully simple pews, seating around 35 people. The nature and wildlife in and around the cemetery, which runs down to the banks of the canal is eye-catching and abundant in every season, making it a beautiful place to visit lost loved ones.
