St Barnabas Church war memorial © St Barnabas Parochial Church Council, 2010This war memorial is located in St Barnabas’s Church in Heigham, Norwich. The World War I and World War II memorial is in the form of an oak triptych with classical detailing such as scrolls and fluted pilasters. The memorial records the names of those killed in World Wars I and II by year of death, and also records the names of civilians killed and as well as the crew of the B24 Liberator 42-95133 458/753-K who died in the parish on 24th November 1944. The names and some of the decorative detailing are gilt.

The memorial was suffering from a woodworm infestation as well as shrinkage of some of the boards. Therefore, in 2011 the Trust gave a grant of £387 towards the cleaning of the memorial, re-fitting of the panels and treatment of the woodworm.Exit holes from the infestation © Linda Ward, 2010

The memorial was made by J Howard and dedicated on 25th January 1920 by Lord Horne of Stirkoke.
