KESWICK WAR MEMORIAL

Detailed information for World War 1 & 2
Compiled and copyright © Michael Peck 2015

The Keswick war memorial is to be found near the town centre in County Square, Keswick. The memorial takes the form of a step surmounted by a broad pedestal and cenotaph with pedimented top. A large honister slate tablet commemorating the World War 1 dead is placed on the front face of the pedestal and two smaller tablets commemorating the World War 2 dead are placed on the left and right hand sides. There is a Relief of Victory in classical costume with sword on the front face of the cenotaph. The sculptor was Mr F Derwent-Wood ARA of Keswick and the memorial, the memorial cost £2,500 was first unveiled 21 May 1922 attended by Lord Rochdale & Mr Walter Swinburn. There are 109 names listed for World War 1 and 50 for World War 2. There is a single plaque that is dedicated to the employees who gave their lives in World War 1 from the Cockermouth, Keswick & Penrith Railway Company.

Extract from Imperial War Museum War Memorial page: "All the money was raised by public subscription. The appeal for the original estimated £4,000 cost was launched in June 1919. In the first week alone £950 was raised. There are weekly updates in the local newspaper 'The Keswick Reminder' detailing every contribution small and large. During the summer contributions dried up and the scheme was shelved in November 1919 (formerly in January 1920) when £1890/2/- had been raised. This scheme included provision for the education and maintenance of the circa 30 children of the town left fatherless, throughout their childhood, a grand carnival on the lake including flares from the local mountain, Skiddaw, a peace medal for each child of the town, and a grand homecoming meal for returning soldiers, sailors and airmen. All these elements were abandoned, except the meal. That was fundraised for separately and held on 12 Feb 1920 at a cost of around £165. The occassion included a 'Smoking Concert'. The memorial scheme itself cost around £2,500 and was not restarted until October 1921 (part of the cause of the delay was that the sculptor became involved in other work after the 1919/1920 postponement.
