St Peter and St Paul, Oxton – WW1 War Memorial

Oxton’s WW1 War Memorial is a stained glass window over the Altar in the East Window with a soldier lying at the foot of the Cross.  The names of all the men of Oxton who died in the War are also listed on each side.  It was commissioned by the then Church Wardens, and designed by A.L. Moore & Sons, Ecclesiastical glass makers. There were not many of these windows made, and it is all the more unusual as it appears to be the only one in Nottinghamshire.

We are planning to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the end of WW1 on 11th November, 2018 and would like to ensure that as many relatives of the men who died are able to attend.   We would be grateful if anyone who is either a relative or knows of any, could please contact us so we can make sure they are invited.  The men listed are:

Stanley Adkins                                   Samuel Argyle                           Charles Carter

Ernest Catlin                                      William Dickman                      William Freestone

Henry Halford                                   Henry Hart                                  W. Hart
