About the memorial: The War Memorial project was initiated by the Crank Village Community Association on behalf of residents of Crank and Kings Moss. This was the result of an idea from village teenager, Chloe Biltcliffe who had visited the Commonwealth War Graves site in France where a former neighbour was buried. Committee member Major (Retd) Mike Brimage TD, as project manager, designed the memorial and organised the required planning permission. Major Brimage researched the names of the fallen for inclusion with the assistance of Frank Rimmer and Joan Dagnall from Rainford Parish Church. Stone for the construction was donated by various village residents. The stonework was completed by Crank resident Steve Mousdell and the Memorial was dedicated on Sunday, 19 July 2015, by the Reverend Major John Williams.
