The Barrow War Memorial takes pride of place on a section of the village green.

Made from Portland stone it is an obelisk mounted on a three-stepped base. It’s surrounded by an iron link fence on concrete pillars.

 

There are 33 names for World War 1 and 11 for World War 2. The face to the memorial was renovated by being recut in 1990. The original memorial was unveiled on 28 December 1920 by Captain Owen A Clark. It was built by H G Neville & Son. Details of the unveiling appeared in the Bury and Norwich Post on 3 December 1920.
