Worfield War Memorial (1), Main Street, Worfield, Shrops
An unusual design of war memorial, located just outside the built-up part of the village, near the junction with the minor road which leads to the A454 road. The memorial has the words "Roll of Honour" and below are the names of those who died in the First World War (here described as the Great War) of 1914-1918. In the churchyard of St. Peter's Church, at the other end of Main Street, there is a war memorial consisting of a cross. This relates to both World Wars. According to the War Memorials Archive this does not record any names. However, according to the church guide there is a list of these inside the church on one of the walls.
