Memorial Chapel – Cobham’s War Memorial

The Chantry Chapel in the north east corner of the church contains Cobham’s original War Memorial.

Unusually this is inside the church, hence the formal Remembrance Day ceremony in Cobham is held inside the church, with a parade of veterans, the British Legion, cadets and scouts and guides before and after the service.

The parade is organised by the British Legion.

A new external memorial was built on The Tilt just a few years ago.
