War Memorial of Kelshall in Hertfordshire

Kelshall is a small village in North East Hertfordshire. It is near the town of Royston. It has a village hall and the local church is St. Faith's.

Church of St Faith, Kelshall, Hertfordshire

The war memorial consists of a memorial granite cross which names the four local men who died in WW1 and two who died in WW2. It is accompanied by a roll of honour within the church, which is a dedication to the forty men of Therfield who fought in World War I and who both returned (36) and were killed in action (4). The memorial cross and roll of honour were unveiled on the 21st December 1919 [1].

On my visit, I could not access the church and therefore I will have to return to photograph and transcribe the memorial plaques.
