The replica memorial lists two of the men killed in WW1. After the Great War, a list was compiled of all Devon men who had given their lives in the War. This was stored in the County Archives as a permanent memorial. To mark the centenary of the outbreak of the war in 2014, a team of volunteers revised the list. and using this valuable source has enabled us to add two more local men to be remembered.
