Status: On original site
Type: Freestanding
Location: External
Setting: Within a garden/park/churchyard/enclosure/Marketplace
Description: Pillar/column
  • Stone Granite
Lettering: Incised
  • Second World War (1939-1945)
About the memorial: A polished black and white granite pillar and base. The pillar is triangular in plan with names in a column on each of the two front faces and the date on the sloping upper surface. The square base has a bevelled front edge which bears the inscription. The incised inscription is in lower case lettering with capital initials, and is coloured black. The names are in gold and hard to read. It is adjacent to the WW1 Obelisk- WMO/109537, and they should really be treated as one memorial but the WW1 record is locked, so this has been raised as a separate record. The incised lettering is hard to read in the granite, but that is really a design, not a condition issue.
