About Otterton

The parish of Otterton saw 16 men go off to war, never to return. Some joined the ‘Devons’ and died on the Western Front, others saw service in other regiments, including one Canadian one, while two were in the Royal Navy, with one seeing action on a submarine. 

They are remembered on the granite Otterton Memorial Cross, outside St Michael’s Church in the village.
