Sergeant Peter Evison is not commemorated on the Etwall War Memorial. However, he had very early connections with Etwall; his parents are buried here in St Helen's Churchyard. Peter's name is recorded, and the manner of his death, on their gravestone.

He is commemorated on the War Memorial in Netherseal, where his parents lived at that time.
