Roll of Honour

By | 3rd December 2010

Now in the entrance of the village hall, Peakirk’s roll of honour shows individuals who were in service during the first world war.

The details here are taken from handwritten papers showing the service of each individual.

    Hello – this is a wonderful find and collection of your fallen servicemen. I wondered if you have a photo or image of your war memorial? I could not locate one for Peakirk on the War Memorials online? but have found a very detailed of the march of villagers to the memorial on the day it was unveiled (circa 1919) problem is, it is rather expensive (£29) but would be an asset to your collection if the Parish Council would fund it?
    I am a volunteer researcher for the WMT and also interested in old postcards commemorating WW1, especially the unveiling of these.
    Kind regards, Jo

      Hello Jo
      The photos on the Roll of Honour are contained within a wooden cabinet which is situated at the Village Hall. I think the photo of the march of villagers may relate to the unveiling of the
      memorial inside the church. Have you seen that memorial?
