The war memorial in the corner of the churchyard commemorates 12 men from the village who died in the First World War which was dedicated in 1920 by the Bishop of Leicester. It includes three Naylors, who were not, as far as we can discover, closely related. There's also a Naylor commemorated who died in the Second World War and is also on a family memorial. In the back right-hand corner of the churchyard there is a family memorial which commemorates Oliver Odell.

Do you know something about Preston War Memorial (St Peter and St Paul Church) that hasn't been mentioned?

Today they lie in cemeteries across the old battlefield in northern France or are remembered among the 72,000 names on the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme. By using our interactive map, you can find out what happened to them.
