About the memorial: The first mention of a public war memorial for Hollingworth was in March 1919 at a meeting of the General Purposes Committee of Hollingworth UDC. A War Memorial Committee was set up to raise money by public subscription to both provide a ‘Welcome Home Fund’ for returning veterans and a war memorial to those who had lost their lives. A meeting in February 1926 resolved that the war memorial should be erected on Wedneshough Green, Hollingworth. The memorial was unveiled on Sunday 14 March 1926 in a ceremony led by Lieutenant Colonel Sir JP Rhodes, BART DSO. It was erected at a cost of approximately £350, the money raised entirely by public subscription, including house to house collections, donations and the proceeds of social events. The architect or stone mason is not known.
