Nonington War Memorial, WWI

Transcribed by Kris Ellis.

A word from Kris:
Nonington Church has two War Memorials.  Both appear to be for WW1 and have the same names, with the exception of the last names on the list which are different.  Just inside the Church gate is a yew tree with a wood and brass memorial plaque on it, and the other is a stone memorial set into an external corner of the Church (to the left of the main door).

1914 - Mighty by Sacrifice - 1918

To the glory of God and in
grateful memory of the men
of Nonington who gave
their lives in the Great War.
