History
Public contribution from a James Brakespear regarding a renovation to the memorial: "Five years ago (2013) in researching the names of our local fallen in WW1 4 were found to be missing from the original memorial. The parish council therefore, with the cooperation of Nettlebed Royal British Legion added the extra names as you can see from the photograph."
