Status: On original site
Type: Freestanding
Location: External
Setting: Within a garden/park/churchyard/enclosure/Marketplace
Description: Cenotaph
  • Stone Granite
Lettering: Incised
  • First World War (1914-1918)
  • Second World War (1939-1945)
About the memorial: The nearby Clock Tower Memorial chamber proved to be too small for well-attended events and a Cenotaph was built in nearby Priory Gardens (now Coronation Gardens) in 2000. This has made the annual Remembrance celebration easier but has removed the personal significance of the names of those who died. At one side of the gardens is a semi circular paved area bounded by low steel railings with three seats, the central one of which bears the inscription below. Centrally placed is the cenotaph set within a circular kerbed step with low railings as the perimeter. The four sided polished granite obelisk stands on a two step plinth. See ref 231250 original tower and lobby, 255027 for Book of Remembrance
