St Giles

(Colchester)

War Memorial

inside St Giles' Church

 

The picture above dates from 1648 and records the murder of Sir Charles Lucas and Sir George Lisle, both executed (barbarously murdered) at the command of parliamentarian Sir Thomas Fairfax.

This stone is probably the earliest monumental inscription that Colchester has to its casualties of war.

The photograph above is of the roll call of the dead of St Giles parish

from the 1914-18 conflict.
