About the memorial: The IWM Register gives the NatWest building as the former location but suggests it may then have passed into private hands in Accrington. IWM States - "No other details known. The only reference to this is in a letter dated 1992 to Whitehaven Library, asking for more details of the lodge and the parent Friendly Society, and enquiring about a future home. The file is being sifted in April 2019 under National Archives guidelines, but has an inconclusive conclusion. Note this Society was a breakaway group from the Independent Order and seems to have been predominantly a North of England organisation, their last trace in the modern County of Cumbria was a very active branch at Elterwater, which closed c 1951 after their charitable function had been superceded by the advent of the National Health Service. Local enquiries have been made, but this seems to be lost. A photocopy was requested for local use in 1992, but extensive enquiries have not proven that such a photocopy was ever provided. There was no mention of its creation in the local press. Given the age of the correspondence it is not ethically correct (under National guidelines) to contact the enquirer, who is more than likely deceased."
