Chipping Norton cemetery, along with many graveyards in the area has a smattering of war graves, 12 in fact, 8 from the First World War and 4 from the Second. As part of our commemorations to mark the centenaries of the First World War and the formation of the RAF we have installed a new memorial board in the entrance to the cemetery telling their stories. Based on research carried out by branch chairman Steve Kingsford and placed in a noticeboard paid for by our Armed Forces Trust, this was unveiled by Town Mayor Don Davidson on 27th May 2018. Present were branch members including WW2 veteran Peter Williers, members of the Cemetery committee and cadets from 136 Chipping Norton Squadron ATC.

After the unveiling the company laid a Poppy cross on each of the 12 graves in the cemetery.
