“Disappointing position for a Memorial”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

The Memorial is a bit tucked away and not easy to find. Feel it should be in a more prominent position in town.It is well looked after however.

Located in the Crescent it is one of the most prominent memorials I have seen. In a very clean and tidy area with pretty garden in the background. Nice to see something of importance be so well maintained.

“Age shall not weary them...”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

This memorial in The Crescent was erected in 1921. A stepped base supports a plinth with a Celtic Cross. There are nearly 300 names inscribed on the memorial.
