About the memorial: Discovered in 2009 in the warehouse of a scrap yard at Trafford Park - no-one knew how it came to be there but it had been there approx.15 years.Originally it was displayed in the entrance hall of the Co-Operative's office buildings at Vere Street, Salford, Greater Manchester - these buildings have been demolished . Although 'battered' the memorial was still legible and had not sustained any serious damage, of cast iron but with the appearance of bronze, it has swags at the head and stylized leaves down each side of the names. It was sent to be restored by London based Iain McLean from the firm of Antique Bronze and when renewed it was placed in the offices of Co-operative Funeral Care, Cross Lane, Salford and rededicated and consecrated on 11-11-2011.Three branches of the Royal British Legion standard bearers took part in the service :- Langsworthy, Broughton and Pendleton and a bugler sounded the 'Last Post' and 'Reveille'. The service was conducted by Canon David Wyatt, Father Sean Braiden and Rev, Kenneth Stokes and there were descendants of the fallen soldiers in attendance.
