Local Memorials

There are a number of war memorials in the area and a considerable overlap of names. Most of those featured here include names of men also listed on the Purley War Memorial Hospital boards - in the case of St Mark's Church, Woodcote, every name found there is also to be found on the hospital Memorial! Interesting details about these, and many other memorials in Croydon can be found in Ronald Cox's excellent book 'At the Going Down of the Sun...An Account of Croydon's War Memorials'.

I will gradually be adding pages below for all the local memorials I have researched so far.
