The War Memorial

The War memorial was built in 2010 from honed Karin Grey Granite, it commemorates 17 men who died in WW1, 15 men from WW2 and 9 civilians. It also commemorates two men as fallen from "other conflicts".

A dedication ceremony was held on Sunday 16 May 2010, attended by the Lord Lieutenant of Essex, the Lord Petre; the Mayor of Chelmsford; representatives of all the armed services; members of Galleywood Parish Council and many others.

The memorial was funded by public subscription.  Galleywood Parish Council maintains the War Memorial in the grounds of the Keene Hall, Watchouse Road.

 

The memorial records the names of those that lived in Galleywood and fell in both world wars and subsequent conflicts, lest we forget their sacrifice.

The names of the fallen are also remembered as individual street names in the Beaulieu Development in North Chelmsford.

Each year at the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month the Parish Council holds a memorial service to honour the fallen at the memorial.
