Return to The War Memorials of Herbert Baker

Ascot War Memorial, Berkshire. Newly listed at Grade II. This simple yet elegant memorial cross in Portland stone commemorates the 64 local servicemen who died in the First World War. Their names are inscribed on the base, with a relief carving of the biblical quote from Ecclesiastes 44: THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE. This phrase was originally chosen by Rudyard Kipling to be inscribed on Sir Edwin Lutyens’ Stone of Remembrance which is found in many Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemeteries in France and Belgium
