Uppingham churchyard has three First World War graves and a fourth soldier is remembered on a family headstone. There is also a Commonwealth War Graves Commission headstone of a soldier from the Second World War. Another interesting grave, with a military headstone, is for a Canadian airman who died in 1953. Ernest Kitchener Churchill, born in 1915, presumably had extremely patriotic parents. The war memorial, at the bottom of the churchyard near the road, has 42 First World War names, but we have records for a further three, bringing the number of Uppingham's war dead to 45. The extra names are of men who were born and spent part of their upbringing in Uppingham but had moved away by the time war broke out. Inside the church there is also a wooden plaque listing all the names.There is information about Uppingham's soldiers on the town's heritage trail website here.
Do you know something about Uppingham War Memorial and Churchyard (St Peter and St Paul's Church) that hasn't been mentioned?
