The St Mary’s Roll of Honour

The St Mary’s Roll of Honour

In 2010, St Mary’s embarked on a project, to find out some background on the 63 named men who went from Nanpantan to serve in  World War 1. Their names appear on a framed illuminated list at the back of St.  Mary in Charnwood. Originally sited on the West wall, the Roll of Honour was  reframed and moved to the South wall, out of direct sunlight during church  reordering in 2013.  The top of the Roll reads: “Your prayers are asked for those who have gone to serve our King and Country by land and sea and air”.
