"Let those who come after see to it that their names are not forgotten "

Like many public buildings in the Forest of Dean and its immediate surroundings, Aylburton used the commemoration of Great War casualties to build for its future.

The Village Hall features a Memorial Garden (reduced in size after the A48, High Street, was widened) with two engraved tablets remembering the War Dead from the Great War and the Second World War.

The Parish Council and Memorial Hall organise a poppy wreath laying ceremony on the 11 November each year.

The Memorial Garden, tablets of commemoration and Flag Staff are maintained and effectively run by the Memorial Hall. No public funds are used for this purpose.

The wrought iron gates commemorating the 1939-1945 conflict are now in need of restoration. Road Wash from traffic disturbing standing water flooding down from Chapel Hill has rotted out the lower sections. The Flower and Vegetable Show has funded a £1000 grant for this purpose. The remainder will be funded by the Hall. We have asked a local business to undertake this work, so the restored and strengthened gates will be returned prior to May 2025.

Normally a Union Flag is flown from the Memorial Hall, its position reflecting HM government advice depending on events.

The trustees will consider requests to fly other flags for events if so requested, noting the Memorial Hall tries to be strictly apolitical.
