WARRINGTON, St. PAUL's CHURCH WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Barry Jones 2016

There was a plaque erected in St Pauls on Bewsey Road, Warrington, dedicated to the local men who lost their lives in both World War 1 and World War 2 who had either attended the church or the All Saints mission which was close by. St Paul's church was demolished in the early 1980’s and the plaque relocated outside the main chapel of the South Lancashire Regimental Museum in Fulwood Barracks, Preston. The first four columns contain the names of the men who fell in World War 1 and the last column those who fell in World War 2. The memorial takes the form of a large wooden board illuminated with coloured leteering listing the names; the memorial was first unveiled in December 1921.

In 1993 the memorial was rescued by someone when they visited a house clearance firm in Warrington. The board was due to be taken to the USA where it was to be placed above an unknown bar. The person recognised their Grandfather and Great Uncle's names were on the board so bought it immediately and held onto it for safekeeping. In the 1980's the church was demolished and an old peoples home was built on the site; the tablet was believed lost at this time.

The names have been sorted into alphabetical order within conflict.
