As we mark the one hundredth anniversary of the end of the First World War in 2018, a guide has been produced to record details of those who died as a consequence of that war and the Second World War and are buried in St Mary’s Churchyard.
Their graves are marked by the distinctive design of a Commonwealth War Grave headstone. The plan will guide you to these graves.
A great many other local people lost their lives in these wars, but are not buried here. Their names are recorded on the memorial inside St Mary’s Church (open 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.), on the War Memorial on Redbourn Common and on the Roll of Honour in the Parish Centre opposite the War Memorial (open 9:30 a.m. to 3:30p.m. Monday-Friday).
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
