  • a Rose bowl in Trinity Church, Church Street, Enfield;

  • wooden boards with names and a centre mosaic roundel in a wreath depicting St George and the Dragon at Southgate School, Sussex Way;
  • an illuminated roll of honour at Ponders End Conservative Club, Derby Road, Ponders End;
  • the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cross of Sacrifice at Edmonton Cemetery on Church Street Edmonton.

The Enfield Society is working on a project with the War Memorials Trust to ensure that: all the existing records of War Memorials are correct and are up to date; there are photographs of all the memorials; the names of all the individuals on the memorial are recorded and a condition survey of the memorial is undertaken.
