Stonecross Memorial ceremony

23rd September 2022

Stonecross Memorial

The Stone Cross Memorial itself commemorates only two men, Charles Prangley (the son of the Vicar, at the time, of Bexwell) and Lionel Pratt of the Ryston Estate. It is believed to be one of the earliest World War I memorials as it was privately commissioned by the two families and was actually constructed whilst the war was still being fought. The location is important too as it is on a former pilgrimage route and is on the boundary of the two parishes the brave young men inhabited. Poignantly both men died on the same date, exactly a year apart. 


Stonecross War Memorial is situated adjacent to the A10 road in Downham Market, Norfolk, opposite the Arbuckles Restaurant/BP Service Station.
