About the memorial: The Ashington Memorial Garden was developed in 2015 and provides an area for quiet reflection recognising the service given, and sacrifice made, in times of conflict by the Ashington community in SE Northumberland. At the centrepiece of the Garden is the War Memorial incorporating the 'Unknown Soldier' created by sculptor Tom Maley in 2001. A new Memorial recognising conflicts after 1945 is also centrally located next to the War Memorial. Over 1,000 people from the Ashington community gave their lives in the World Wars. Extensive research by local historians enabled the development of new plaques for the Memorial, correcting significant omissions and errors and fully recognising those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country.
