About the memorial: This is a stone cross in the churchyard of St Thomas’s Church. It was unveiled by Lieutenant-General Sir John Keir in August 1921. It is dedicated to the men of Keresley and Coundon who lost their lives and the names of the 22 men who died are inscribed on it. Comparing the 2013 and 2015 photos would suggest that some restoration has occurred between the two dates
