WARRINGTON, JOSEPH CROSSFIELD & SONS LTD WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Stephen Nulty 2008

The Warrington Joseph Crossfields & Sons Ltd War memorial stands on Liverpool Road, Warrington. It listed the names of the men who died in World War 1 (136 names) and World War 2 (27 names). It takes the form of a two-stepped base surmounted by a tall brick wall with dedicatory bronze plaques placed on the front of the wall. The whole is enclosed by an orbate black and gold painted wrought iron fence. The inscription is in relief with a relief carving of a wreath, with eternal flame in the centre, at the top of the plaque flanked by a machine-gunner and Royal Navy gunner; the whole has a laurel leaf and berry border. Ineos Silicas (formerly Crosfield) maintains the memorial conducting a yearly wreath laying ceremony on the 11th November.
