Joe Harris is named on a marble memorial inside the church, the only soldier from this village to die. But the six Hill brothers, three of whom died, Ralph, Harold and Robert, also had links with Pilton. They are remembered on Skegness' war memorial where their family moved to either just before or shortly after the First World War.

Do you know something about Pilton War Memorial (St Nicholas' Church) that hasn't been mentioned?
