Maxey and Deeping Gate’s Memorial

As part of their national centenary focus on the UK’s First World War memorials, Historic England have notified Peterborough City Council they are considering recommending the listing of one of our own here in Tribland, in the Churchyard at St Peter’s, Maxey, as a Building of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. 

They state our War memorials are among the most tangible and precious reminders of the sacrifices made by communities during the First World War and that the government is committed to seeing all the nation’s memorials placed in a good state of repair by 2018. 

I’ve had a meeting with PCC’s Principal Built Environment Officer Jim Daley and, in order we might contribute to HE’s investigation and consideration, he would welcome commentary from anyone who’s had memories passed to them and also local residents’ thoughts regarding its erection, how it was instigated, whether it was a subscription memorial and any further background about the Maxey and Deeping Gate men depicted upon it who lost their lives during the Great War. 

To assist and remind of those names: ‘In grateful memory of the men of Maxey and Deeping Gate who gave their lives for their country in the Great War 1914–1918’

Alfred Adcock, Herbert Pearson, Cecil Cobley, John Pridmore, Herbert Woolley Pears, Arthur George Bloodworth, Thomas Smith, Herbert Smitheringale, John Bingham, Gerard Talbot Sweeting, Arthur Pridmore, Herbert Andrews, James Maltby, John Thomas Cobley, Edward 

Pearson, John Pearson and George Henry Granger.

Also, on a later attached stone is etched the name of Alec McShane – who died during WW2.
