St Agnes War Memorial

This page is one of a series about St Agnes. I spent a Sunday there. 
Unusually I suppose the War Memorial is in the grounds of the Methodist church. A church service was taking place. A quite austere building. It is well placed easily visible and unlike many of the memorials in Cornwall polished. It is placed in its own small garden and well maintained.


The memorial in front of the church

The inscription on the front face says:

AND IN
REMEMBRANCE OF OUR MEN,
WHO, LAID DOWN THEIR LIVES
IN THE GREAT WAR
1914-1918
---- - ----
THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE
--- - ---
ALSO SECOND WORLD WAR
1939 -1945
