Geocache Description:


War Memorial #691 ~ Eltisley

The war memorial is to be found outside St Pandionia and St John's Church, St Neots Road, Eltisley. The World War 1 memorial consists of two plaques inside the lych gate entrance inset into the limestone walls all set in an oak frame structure. There is an inscription across the lintel. There are 14 names listed for World War 1. The memorial is maintained by the Eltisley parish Council and the lychgate was restored in 2005 (it is a Grade II Listed building). The Bishop of Ely dedicated the gate in 1920 after the Women’s Institute organised fund raising for its creation. The World War 2 memorial is in the form of a concrete plaque.
