About the memorial: Originally Dedicated on 19th May 1923, the Angel was latterly restored by a local history group and Rededicated on 7th May 2010. There are 60 names commemorated: 54 Army, 5 Royal Navy men who died in WW1, plus the then Headmaster, Mr George Taylor, in gratitude for his local work and support in WW1.The memorial is sited in the playground on the south side of the school. In Summer 2016, the school site was closed and the pupils and staff will move to a new build in the area in September 2016. Contact has been made with North Lincolnshire Council, who intend to demolish the old school building but intend to keep the Crosby Angel in situ and incorporate it in a Memorial Garden as part of a proposed new development of affordable housing on the site.
