The Lych Gate at the entrance to the churchyard in Rectory Lane was erected as a memorial to the men of the village who were killed in the 1914-18 War. Subsequently the list of names was enlarged with the addition of those who died in 1939-45.

The year of the photograph is unknown. If you can tell us please add a comment below.

Lych Gate was built by my great grandfather John Henry Flowers. He was born 1877 in Warwick and died 1954 in Wimbledon. I shall be visiting Lych Gate for the first time at Easter 2011.
He also made a lot of the carvings in Edge Hill Church, Wimbledon.
