The Memorial takes the form of a plaque inside the church. Among the four names on it is James Wright of the Sherwood Foresters who might be the James Wright who appears on Lyndon's Memorial. We have listed him under Lyndon, as George Phillips in Rutland and the Great War did, but it could be he spent time in Tickencote. One name not on the Memorial is Harry Waters who is buried in Tyne Cot  cemetery and whose parents lived at Tickencote Lodge. We don't know if Harry himself came from Tickencote or whether his parents moved there at some later date. But he is remembered in Little Casterton Church on a plaque originally in Toll Bar Methodist Church so obviously had connections there as well. Another name which might have been added to Tickencote's memorial is John Thomas Branston Woodward who spent part of his life in the village but was living in Caldecott when he joined up. Sadly he is not remembered in either village.

Do you know something about Tickencote War Memorial (St Peter's 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.
