Shropham war memorial plaques after work © Shropham P. C. C., 2007The war memorial plaques in St Peter and St Paul church in Shropham are the roll of honour for the village. The two plaques record the fallen of the two World Wars.

The plaques are lacquered brass with the wording incised with a black wax infill. They had suffered considerable staining from bat urine over the years which caused damage to the lacquer surface and corrosion. Conservation work was supported by War Memorials Trust with a grant of £725 towards cleaning and re-lacquering.

The First World War memorial reads:
