War Memorial

The Hazlemere War Memorial is situated outside Holy Trinity Church on the Amersham Road. The memorial is Loosely modelled on Sir Reginald Blomfield’s Cross of Sacrifice, it takes the form of a plain Latin cross in Portland stone standing approximately 4m high. The principal dedication is recorded on the front face of the steps, reading:

Greater love hath no man than this,

That a man lay down his life for his friends


To the glorious memory of the men of Hazlemere and District

Who fell in the Great War


It is a memorial open to the community who wish to pay their respects to those who have fallen and perhaps reflect in the local church garden or The Atrium café. The pupils and staff of Hazlemere Church of England visit the memorial on Remembrance Day to leave their respects. Hazlemere Parish Council work with the local Royal British Legion and will donate a wreath of poppies as a mark of remembrance and respect.

The memorial is routinely cared for and maintained by Hazlemere Parish Council. If you have any questions or concerns about the memorial please do contact The Clerk .
