Bishopsteignton’s War Memorial is “listed” and stands at the top of a raised platform adjacent to the pavement on Fore Street, Bishopsteignton. It was first erected to commemorate those who died during the First World War. Later a stone plaque and flower vase were added at the base of the memorial to commemorate the Fallen of the Second World War.
The War Memorial has the following inscription:
“To the Glory of God, and the Immortal Memory of the Brave Men of Bishopsteignton who fell in the Great War 1914 -1919.”
“Greater love Hath no man than this. That a man lay down His Life for his friends”
Here are the names of the men of Bishopsteignton recorded on the memorial who lost their lives in World War 1.
