Gloucestershire – Kemble: Kemble Cross

Second Lieutenant Robert Bailey, who was the brother of Mrs Helen Lees-Milne of Wickhamford Manor, is honoured on the war memorial at the crossroads of Limes Road and Church Lane, Kemble.  Robert had a house in Ewen, three miles from Kemble, which is why he appears on the memorial.

The war memorial at Kemble is a three-metre tall stone Crusader cross set on a plinth, sited close to the Church of All Saints.  It has four metal panels on the sides of the plinth.  The first panel says:  THEIR NAMES LIVETH FOR EVERMORE.  Robert’s name is one of five to be recorded on the second panel.
