About the memorial: Warrington war memorial is a large obelisk dedicated to those from Warrington who lost their lives during the First and Second World War. The memorial includes a series of bronze panels recording the names of those who lost their lives. In 2017 work started to investigate the riverbank to the north of the war memorial which has started to collapse. Warrington Borough Council are planning to stabilise the riverbank following the end of the centenary and also improve disabled access to the rear of the war memorial. Further details and updates on the project can be found at www.warrington.gov.uk/Cenotaph.
