War Memorials at the Church of St. Nicholas, Bromham, Wiltshire




There are five commemorations to people of the parish who died and served in the world wars and a few individual memorials.  Some are 'Thanks' commemorations for the safe return of loved ones.  Some memorials have more photographs of them - use the link below it to see them.

As well as these photographs we have transcribed the memorials and produced a page with the inscription on - follow the link under the photograph of a memorial to see the transcription.  From this transcription page is a further link to a printeable version; this has the same text but with all the usual page links removed.

Note about photographs 00917/8  above.

The inscription on the memorial reads:  "PO2537 PTE. S. H. Baxter, R.M.L.I. 10-10-18"

We did not reconise this name from the war memorials that are at St. Nicholas so we did a little research.  The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) does not have a 'Baxter' record around this date and the name does not appear on any of the war memorials in Bromham.  However, the name of Harry BARTER does appear on memorials at St. Nicholas so we searched for this name at the CWGC.  There is a listing for him and it gives the same regiment (R.M.L.I.) as the inscription, gives his wife's name as Winifred and that they lived in Bromham.

If our assumptions are correct, this inscription read:  "PO/2527(S) Pte H Baxter, R.M.L.I. 08-10-1918"
