Mells War Memorial

Mells War Memorial designed by Edward Lutyens

This was reputedly copied from a statue in the chapel of Henry VII in Westminster Abbey. Beneath the column is a long curved seat, made from Portland stone and an integral stone wall, inscribed with the names of local men who died during the First World War, including Edward Horner and his brother-in-law, Raymond Asquith.

To this was added two circular panels engraved with the names of the fallen from the Second World War.

Like many other features in the village, the memorial was designed by Edwin Landseer Lutyens, a friend of the Horner family.
