ROSS ON WYE WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2015

The Ross on Wye District War memorial is to be found in Prospect Gardens overlooking River Wye, Ross on Wye. It takes the form of a Cornish Cross on two-stepped convex base surmounted by square pedestal, tapering shaft and cross; the inscription is in black lettering on the sides of the pedestal and top base, an additional small tablet has been placed on one side for the Falklands. There are 105 names for World War 1, 44 for World War 2 and one for the Falklands. The memorial was originally unveiled 4 July 1920, it cost £400; details appeared in the Ross Gazette 7 July 1921; it was rededicated 9 November 2008. In 2008 repairs to the park and cemetery dividing wall led to the discovery of Roman remains around, and beneath, the war memorial. The memorial was dismantled and stored to allow for excavation work to take place. It was then re-sited a short distance away. Around 1980 two German field guns that were originally sited with memorial were removed.
