In 1956 a second memorial was erected to the memory of those villagers that had fallen during the Second World War. It was dedicated by the Bishop of Leicester and was unveiled by Lt. Commander R Dean, R.N. This memorial was also designed by Edward Parkinson and was made of similar materials to the memorial above it.
