About the memorial:
This new modern building, but looking like an old school, has been constructed in a conservation area within Alford on the site of the old coal-yard and is owned by the Friends of Alford Memorial Hospital. It was opened on the 7th January, 1994 by Councillor Michael Kennedy of East Lindsey.
There is a plaque inside the entrance hall showing its opening:
The Friends of Alford War Memorial Hospital built the hall, mainly by using money donated by legacies of former grateful patients of the War Memorial Hospital before it was closed, as well as by way of a “Buy a Brick” campaign.
A plaque in the entrance hall, made by Christine Anderson of Alford, lists the donors for the building fund of the War Memorial Hall:-
A local builder, Willey Coffey built the hall, and the architect was Michael Credland from Roberts Architects of Lincoln. The Hall has an entrance hall, with toilets and an office which has been converted into a Physiotherapy room.
The local Member of Parliament holds his “surgery” at the hall, the hall still maintains its medical theme with the treatment room and physiotherapy room.
