Geocache Description:


This is a multi-cache War Memorial which has special significance, due to the sacrifices of the families and the large numbers of men who died in the conflicts, from Kingswood Parish: 166 men died in WWI. 65 men died in WWII, The memorial is located at Holy Trinity Church, in Kingswood, at the posted co-ordinates, where fact gathering needs to be done, as follows:

A. In WWI, 1914-1918, how many men with thei surname BRITTON?

B. In WWI, 1914-1918, how many men with the surname SMITH?

C. In WWI, 1914-1918, how many men with the surname BROWN?

G. In WWII, 1939-1945, how many multiple surnames are there in total?

H. I. A generation apart, how many surnames from WWI, also appear in WWII? H = __ I = __.

This is an extremely sad revelation! "The war to end all wars," didn't work in its aim to keep future sons and cousins safe.

J. K .L. M. To the right of the War Memorial, next to the main church entrance, is a copper plaque, in memory of Dr. P.T.T MACDONALD. How many years was he a physician? J = __ , K = __. How old was he when he died? L = __ , M = __.


Substitute the letters below, for your number answers and do the calculations, to find the cache co-ordinate:


N51 (G / K) (C x B) . (M - E) (B -I) (F / D)

W002 (L / J) (A + E) . (G + H) (A + C) (L - F)


This War Memorial was erected in 1921. It is carved from stone. It has a square base and stands at the centre of a triangular platform. 

The memorial is located to the north-west corner of Holy Trinity church (1821, Grade II*), the war memorial stands on a raised triangular platform which has a stone seat to the centre and a set of 4 stone spiral steps to the right. There are 3 additional stone steps to either side of the memorial to a raised square platform behind. The octagonal base of the memorial is enclosed by four corner posts with cross-vaulted style tops. The shaft, which is square at the base, tapers in octagonal section to a lantern set above a band of foliate carving with an octagonal annulet to the top and bottom. The lantern has four faces with traceried niches. On the north-west face is a relief sculpture which appears to be a depiction of Christ displaying the stigmata. On the north-west face of the base is a recessed panel with the inscription: O SAVIOUR / WHO DIDST DIE AND / RISE AGAIN FOR ALL / REMEMBER THESE IN / THY MERCY WHO DIED / FOR US AND GRANT / TO THEM A JOYFUL / RESURRECTION
