NEW ZEALAND ROLLS OF HONOUR AND WAR MEMORIALS
ESKDALE WAR MEMORIAL CHURCH, ESKDALE, HAWKES BAY
Location: State Highway 5 [Napier - Taupo Road], Eskdale.
Eskdale War Memorial Church, on State Highway 5 north of Napier, was dedicated on 3 December 1920. The interdenominational church was built by local landowner Thomas Clark and his daughter Annie in memory of Annie’s husband, Lieutenant Percival Moore Beattie, who had been killed in action at Le Quesnoy on 4 November 1918. Two granite commemorative tablets were installed in the church; the larger listed the names of 26 other men from the district who had given their lives. On 27 April 1947 a memorial tablet was unveiled in honour of the men from Eskdale and Bayview, and the old boys of France House (a local home for teenage boys), who had given their lives in the Second World War. The church also displays a memorial tablet for Marcus G. Smith, killed at El Alamein on 16 July 1942.
