About

The village of Woodham Walter has several different war memorials:

The Memorial Garden, a large area of verge running from opposite St Michael’s Church down to the Bell pub, is cultivated with bulbs and is maintained by the Parish council as a living memorial to those from the village who were killed in World War One.

The Memorial Shelter is a practical memorial to those killed in World War Two, in the form of a brick bus shelter close to the village school. The shelter was built in the 1940s by the British Legion of Woodham Walter and contains a memorial plaque dedicated to “those who gave their lives in the service of their country, 1939-1945”.

The Memorial Clock is attached to St Michael of All Angels church, and is dedicated to those in the parish who died in World War One. Inside the church there is also a plaque listing the names of 20 individuals who died in this war, along with two private memorials to Private John Abram Campion and Captain Alfred Falkner.

The churchyard also contains two Commonwealth War Graves, for Second Lieutenant T H French, died 1917, and Sapper Eric Bird, who died in 1943.
