Our War Memorial


Web002

Below the west window in our Parish Church is a memorial to our parishioners who died in the two world wars of the twentieth century.

Our War Memorial was designed by the English architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott – the architect of Liverpool Cathedral – and has been said to be “a beautiful example of his art”.

The central portion of the memorial is of white marble, with a black marble background framed in red sandstone. The crucifixion in the centre has two angels below. The names of the fallen carved in red sandstone, are placed alphabetically, irrespective of rank.

The memorial is a focal point at our Church’s annual Remembrance Sunday service.
