The War Memorial in Little Bowden is situated in the grounds of St Nicholas' church.  It's a large cross to the left hand side of the church if you enter via the pathway of Rectory Road.  Major John Hugh Jerwood is remembered on the memorial - his father was the vicar at St Nicholas' for more than fifty years.
