War Memorial

War Memorial

This cemetery is in Grange Road, 800 yards South of Plaistow railway station. It contains 244 burials of the 1914-1918 war; 97 are in the sailors and Soldiers plot, which is marked by a war cross and a stone Kerb Wall bearing the names. A Screen Wall memorial, close to the main drive, bears the names of those whose graves, elsewhere in the cemetery, are not marked by headstones. There are 132 Commonwealth burials of the 1939-1945 war here. Some of these were casualties of the “Blitz” air raids and are buried in a collective grave alongside civillian casualties. The names of the war dead in this collective grave are recorded on a panel over the graves. A further 1939-1945 Screen Wall memorial bears the names of those whose graves, elsewhere in the cemetery, are not marked by headstones.
