War Memorial Tablets & Local History

The impact of the Great War on Platt was immense as almost 50 families lost loved ones and accounted for about 25% of all the men from the parish who saw overseas service.

After the war it was felt that a memorial to those who had died should be erected in the parish, and following a number of public meetings it was decided that the structure should be incorporated into a village hall that would serve as a focal point for community activities. A local landowner donated a parcel of land with funding to build the hall eventually raised through public donations. The first Platt War Memorial Hall was officially opened on 18 November 1922 and has its own dedicated website. The war memorial was relocated brick-by-brick from the old structure to the new building in 2016, and also features a new bronze plaque of names for individuals who were not included on the original tablets.
