War Memorials

 

Oxfordshire War Memorials

Over the next four years or so (2014-2019) we plan to build a general resource centred on the War Memorials across the county of Oxfordshire.

To start the ball rolling, here are a few words and a long list from John Blakeman, the OFHS War Memorials Coordinator.

To correct or add to this list, please either leave a comment on this page (see foot), contact John directly by post (24 Newland Close, Eynsham, WITNEY, OX29 4LE) or send an email to war-memorials@ofhs.org.uk which will be received and passed on by the webmaster.

How was your town or village affected ?

Memorials in towns and villages tell us what people felt at the time.

There are about 106 free-standing war memorials in the county and scores of other plaques, gates, panels and other kinds. Around 321 Churches in the county have memorials, most have several.

Where a church and a war memorial are shown on the list below, the memorial is in addition to anything in the church or churchyard. .

The list is incomplete – do tell us of any missing and also of new ones.

Several War Memorials have now ‘disappeared’ – details are known but they are not listed here.

You can find more information on War Memorials Archive (formerly the UK National Inventory of War Memorials [UKNIWM]).   Many memorials, including photographs, are included on village or church websites.

Photographs of many of the memorials are on  –  www.oxfordshirewarmemorials.co.uk  –  (but at the time of writing, this site is not useable).

Oxfordshire Family History Society (OFHS) have details/information on almost all of the Oxfordshire War Memorials.

Notes:
      Schools will have restricted access. The Oxford Colleges may also have restricted access.

  1. There is another web-site with details of war memorials – http://www.roll-of-honour.com/Oxfordshire/index.html

    It is very sparse, listing only 16 memorials in the county, but some do have photographs as well as details of the men commemorated.

  2. the war memorial at Dorchester-on-Thames is listed here as being in Dorchester Abbey, but it is in fact on the High Street (I think the rool-of-honour website has it correctly. the story of the memorial and the names on it is told in ‘Lest We Forget’ by Don McGregor, available from Dorchester Abbey Museum, and the memorial is highlighted in Kate Tiller’s recent book on War Memorials. Margot Metcalfe, Dorchester Historical Society and Dorchester Abbey Museum.

    • I refer you to the explanatory text: “Where a church and a war memorial are shown on the list below, the memorial is in addition to anything in the church or churchyard.”

  3. What is the location of the “Morrell’s Brewery” war memorial and is it currently accessible to the public ? Of course, the brewery closed nearly twenty years ago, and was converted to residential accommodation.

  4. It is not clear whether this memorial is one of those listed above :-

    However, if it is, it is nevertheless an interesting update.

    • As this is a memorial to (members of) a USAAF unit, I would take this to be the “American Memorial” referred to in the list.
