Peter Gillings - March 2012

UKNIWM Ref - 27471

Thurgarton Village, on the verge of the A612. The memorial was donated by Mrs Upton of Thurgarton Priory, in 1919 and bears the names of two of her grandsons, Thomas Upton and Guy Usborne. The memorial was restored and rededicated in 2010; one name, Thomas Paling, was added to the memorial. The memorial includes the names of two men who died in the Second World War. Additionally, the Priory Church of St Peter has an illuminated roll of honour which lists the parishioners who served in the Great War; the names of those who died of wounds, were killed in action or were posted 'missing' are annotated accordingly. There is also a pre-printed Roll of Honour, names added in manuscript, in the church; the names of those who died are annotated 'RIP'.
