Fleckney War Memorial

Fleckney War Memorial Tablet

Fleckney’s memorial to the dead of both World Wars is sited in St Nicholas Church. With the 100th anniversary of the end of the first World War in November 2018, the Fleckney History Society have been researching the names of those who lost their lives during the 1914-1918 conflict and below are brief details of their findings. A much more comprehensive folder of information is held at Fleckney Library (

In several cases it has proved impossible to establish a direct link with Fleckney and there are many gaps in this list. Please be in touch with the vicar if you can fill in any missing details or can correct any errors.
