War Memorial

War Memorial unveiled 1921

The King’s School War Memorial was created after the First World War. It was designed by Herbert Baker and unveiled on 19 December 1921 by Major General Sir Evan Carter OKS (see picture). The Memorial Court was excavated at the same time. A tablet with the names of those killed was later placed in the undercroft and dedicated by the Archbishop of Canterbury. This had the names of 146 boys, in order of their leaving school. A further 14 names (including two masters) were added in 2014.
