An inspiration for the generations of children in the near future

In Speenhamland it was felt that there should be two war memorials.

A representative meeting of parishioners was held in the schoolroom on Monday, March 10th, to consider the question of a War Memorial for this Parish. Those present were unanimously of the opinion that some permanent memorial should be raised to the gallant sailors and soldiers from our midst who have laid down their lives for their country. It was felt that the main memorial should be in the Church itself, and that some record should also be placed in the School adjoining, through which so many of the boys had passed, as this would be an inspiration for the generations of children in the near future. Various suggestions were made as to the memorial in the Church, which will be considered in due course, and the following (with power to add to their number) were appointed a Committee to deal with the matter:- the Vicar, the Churchwardens, the Sidesmen, Mr. Herring, Mrs. Day, Miss M. Bunny, Miss Fuller and Miss Wilson. Mr. Corden will act as secretary.
