Framed Roll of Honour, inside St Botolph's Church, The Hill, Northfleet. This used to hang in Northfleet's Council offices.

I can see the name of an uncle on this roll of honour. I was told he had died in the first war, the story being that it was from a sniper's bullet.

St Peter and St Paul's Church, Swanscombe.

The memorial commemorates servicemen from both wars, and civilians from the second World War.

I have closer pictures of the panels, if anybody has a relatives name on it.

Echoing kyn's words, thank you for these additions Kentishwolf. The transcriptions you included with many of them are particularly helpful as they help people search for their relatives.

If anybody has a relative on one of the memorials in the Gravesend area, I have researched most of them and have photo's which I will happily share.
