St Peter’s, Norton - The War Memorials

St Peter’s church in Norton contains a number of Memorials and memorial windows to the fallen of the Boer War, the Great War and the second World War. Most but not all are located in the chapel at the east end of the South Aisle, which also holds the official Norton memorial book, a beautiful production commemorating those who died in the 1914-1919 war. It has been digitised and can be found at Europeana 1914 -1918.

The Boer war memorial consists of painted panels, two being a Roll of Honour of all those who returned from South Africa and one commemorating the fallen:

Remember ye in the Lord all those who died in war for their Sovereign and Country in South Africa 1899-1902 especially:
