About the memorial: Unfortunately the sculpture, plaque and drinking fountain were stolen in April 1968. The drinking fountain erected in 1926 was the work of sculptor Richard R Goulden, (who two years previously, had made the magnificent Crompton War Memorial) The statue was originally exhibited at the British Empire Exhibition in Wembley in 1924 and purchased anonymously by "a gentleman and a lady", of Crompton for £300 and then erected just off the main promenade in the park. The bronze figures of a mother and child stood on a Scottish granite plinth and a working drinking fountain with cup was used by park users to obtain running water.
