DROYSLDEN SOUTH AFRICAN (BOER) WAR MEMORIAL

Boer War - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2006

The Droylsden Boer War memorial is attached to the exterior of the Droylsden Labour Club in Manchester Road, Droylsden, facing the road. Originally it was affixed to the Town Hall but when this was demolished in 1970 the plaque was moved. The plaque is made from bronze and the inscriptions are in relief. Listed are 45 names of those who served and 2 names of those that died. The memorial was unveiled in 1902 the monies were raised by public subscription which initially were paid into the Patriotic Fund to raise money for the wounded soldiers, the residue was then spent on the plaque.
