About the memorial: At 08:00 am on the16th December 1914, German ships bombarded Scarborough with shells, causing extensive damage to buildings throughout the town. Many people were injured and eighteen men, women and children died during that day. In the weeks, months and years following, many more people were killed as fishing boats and other vessels hit mines laid by the German ships. Seventeen of the eighteen victims of the bombardment are buried in Dean Road and Manor Road Cemetery. In 2014 the Friends of the Cemetery were successful in an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund and the memorial cairn was commissioned by the Friends and built by Adrian Blant.
