Barrowby Memorial HallWhile many towns and villages collected money for a cross or sculpture to commemorate those who died fighting in the First World War there were people who thought that such money could be better spent on something more practical. As a result most village memorial halls date from the early 1920s.
For an especially informative account of such post-First World War memorial halls see the relevant chapter of Ivor Perry's book about the Memorial Hall at Wymeswold, Leicestershire (Perry 2014 p189–90).
However Barrowby's Memorial Hall was erected in 1946, commemorating those who died in the Second World War. In more recent years in has been extended and refurbished.
