West Tilbury Village Hall was built as a memorial of those men of the village who gave their lives in the Great War.  Their names are listed in the hall and on the memorial tablet in St. James' church, which is now a private residence. A detailed list of these names is shown below to which the names of those who died in the Second World War have been added.
