Devonshire Street School, Cheltenham, War Memorial Plaque

   LEAVING CHELTENHAM …………..and all that was dear



War Memorial Plaque

 Devonshire Street School, Cheltenham

Location:   Devonshire Street,  Cheltenham

Grid Reference:   SO 947226

Visited:   September 2002

The actual Roll of Honour (IWM War Memorial Ref 32311), was transferred to St Mary’s Church, Cheltenham, when the school closed.


The school was also known as the Cheltenham Parish Church Boys School.


The Roll of Honour, and the names inscribed thereon, can be viewed here.

Unfortunately, access into the old school in Devonshire Street cannot be guaranteed as the building is now in residential use.   The plaque (above left) states “In this school is erected a memorial to the Old Boys who fell in the Great War 1914 – 1919”   Directly below this inscription is a verse:

They trod of old the fields we tread

They played the games we play

The part of them that is not dead

Belongs to us today
