Albury has two WWI memorials. The wooden memorial plaque in Albury Village Hall states: "PARISH OF ALBURY. THE OFFICERS AND MEN WHO SERVED IN THE GREAT WAR. 1914-1919." 35 who perished have gold lettering. More names appear than the 26 on the stone memorial in Albury Church.

Details of memorials, service, honours, families and photographs of those named on the stone memorial in Albury Church who lost their lives in World War One were researched in 2018 by Peter Drinkwater.

This file, of some three hundred pages including the Albury War Memorial dedication service, is in the vestry of St Peter and St Paul's Church, Albury.

In 2020 Albury History Society scanned all 29 sections, which are available below. The wooden plaque names are further down.

Dedication Service, Sunday March 5th. 1922  From the Service of Commemoration programme:
THE MEMORIAL: The project for the Erection in the Parish Church of a Memorial, which should be a parochial tribute to the men killed in the War, was initiated in May 1920 at a Parish Meeting; as an outcome of the scheme proceeded under the direction of:
COMMITTEE: His Grace the Duke of Northumberland, The Rev. H.E.Crowley, Mr. W.W. Rhoades, Mr. C.A. Botting, Mrs. Malthus, Miss Capadose (Hon. Sec.), Mr. Z. Pollard, Miss M. King-Church, Mr. W. Knight, Mr. J. Gadd, Mr. G.H. Coe, Mr. G.E. Foard, Mr. A Osborne, Mr. E. Browne.
ARCHITECT: Mr. G.F. Metcalfe.
MASONS: Messrs. Arthur Moon & Sons.
CASTERS: The Albion Art Foundry, Ltd.

The stone-work—a niche with semi-circular arch, carved with double chevrons and supported by pillars—is in Hopton Wood Stone and is of a Romanesque character akin to the style of the church. In the niche is a bronze relief—kneeling figure of a soldier. The names of the fallen are incised in the stone below and the offering-up of their lives is shown, in symbol, by a lighted lamp borne in the soldier's hands. In the space under the arch is a painting; an angel reads from a scroll the record of all that was accomplished and endured in the great war, and with a harp and voice angels give thanks to God Who has given such gifts unto men.
