“We are all anxious to have a Memorial which will be entirely worthy of the occasion”

Newbury made moves towards getting a war memorial designed.

At the first committee meeting [appointed by the meeting of parishioners on 22 January to consider a war memorial] on Feb. 4th, the names of Mr R Martin, junior, and Mr F H Stillman were added to the above. At the same meeting the Rector was asked to write and enquire about an architect, who would give the necessary advice as to a suitable memorial. He has been referred by the Archdeacon of Berks to the Vicar of Burford, and is waiting to hear from him. The final decision of the committee will be reported to another Meeting of Parishioners. We are all anxious to have a Memorial which will be entirely worthy of the Church and of the occasion.
