Chicheley War Memorial, Buckinghamshire. Unveiled by Lady Farrar 22 October 1920. Newly listed at Grade II. The patron of this war memorial was Lady Farrar, widow of Sir George Farrar who died in an accident while on active service in Namibia in 1915. He is commemorated on the memorial, as are the eight local servicemen who died in the war; each name and date of death carved on one face of the octagonal plinth’s middle tier. Baker had designed a house for the Farrar’s in South Africa.
