Nether Whitacre, St Giles War Memorial

The WWI memorial is situated just inside the church yard entrance from the Kingsbury Road.  The listing of the men is unusually detailed. It is understood that the WWII memorial is inside the church. The Dedication reads:-

This cross was erected in the year 1920 to the glory of God
and in grateful and loving memory of those men of Nether Whitacre
whose names are engraved there on who gave their lives for their country
in the Great War 1914-1919. 
They died that we might live.
