Gotham's War Memorial

Gotham’s War Memorial whilst being different from the more regular stone or bronze memorials often seen in towns and villages throughout the United Kingdom, it is not entirely unique, being in the form of a Recreation Ground and Memorial Hall.

The Recreation Ground and Memorial Hall was created for the benefit of the surviving community and future generations’ use. The Recreation Ground being available for the usual team participation sports and including also a children’s play area. The Memorial Hall providing various rooms for all indoor activities as well as meetings spaces for a number of village organisations and private parties.

Within the Main Hall are Rolls of Honour recognising people’s sacrifice in both World Wars I and II. The Gotham Roll for World War I is unusual for its period in containing the names of women as well as men engaged or employed in war service not only those losing their lives but including those surviving the conflict.

World War I’s “The Gotham Roll”.

Participants who died during or because of the War have their individual histories included within the following pages, also included are those participants World War II who lost their lives.
