WEST END WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed Information
Compiled and copyright © Liz Jones 2016
Researched Martin Edwards

The West End War Memorial is to be found at the junction of High Street and West End Road, West End, Southampton, Hampshire. It takes the form of a rough hewn, three stepped, stone block surmounted by a smooth stone base, a tapering shaft and a Celtic cross. The dedicatory inscriptions, and the names, are to be found on two irregular shaped tablets, one for World War 1 and the other for World War 2, that are placed either side of the base. There is a Celtic knotwork design carved in relief on the front face of the cross and shaft. When the memorial was originally unveiled the World War 1 tablet was mounted on the front face of the stepped base but when the World War 2 tablet was added it was removed and placed to the side. There are thirty five names for World War 1 and twenty for World War 2. The memorial was unveiled 5 June 1920 by Colonel E K Perkins, Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire and other local dignitries; Colonel E K Perkins, and a local resident, undertook to erect a memorial when the memorial committee failed to come to an agreement on what form of memorial to erect due to cost and other considerations.
