About the memorial: One of 19 plaques of similar design installed by the Wigan Coal and Iron Company at its Works and Collieries in 1920. This was installed on Saturday July 10th. The pit closed in February 1924, and it is understood that the plaque has been in the care of Aspull British Legion for most of the time since then, being moved to various premises in the village before being installed in its present location in the main room of the Club when the new building was opened in 1965.
