Ranby St Martin
The war memorial is built into the wall on the west side of the churchyard. It is made of stone and consists of a cross surmounting a plinth and was designed by Charles Spooner of London.
It was unveiled by W. H. Mason of Morton Hall and dedicated by the Rev R.D. Foster, the Rural Dean of Retford, on 15 December 1920.
The inscription on the plinth reads:
|HE LOVED ME AND GAVE HIMSELF FOR ME.

WHO FELL IN FRANCE IN THE AUTUMN OF 1918
Information on the men listed is available on the Nottinghamshire Roll of Honour website.
