Riverhead Memorial


Many thanks go to a local residents, Martin Denton and Martin Arnold who have researched and documented the history of soldiers and civilians from Riverhead who died in both World Wars. The albums are held by both Riverhead Parish Council and St Mary's Church.  Contact Caroline, the Clerk if you wish to look at them.

The World War 1 memorial is located in the Riverhead Village Hall gardens and has recently been moved so that residents can stand in front of it at the annual Remembrance Sunday service held on the 2nd Sunday in November. Other war memorials can be found in St Mary's Church and its Remembrance gardens.
