MARTON WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and Copyright © Michael Peck 2007

The memorial is to be found in the grounds of St Margaret's Church, Marton. It takes the form of Celctic Cross on atapered shaft mounted on a plinth, the whole standing on a three-stepped base. The inscriptions are affixed to the plinth on two msides in the form of white, marble, tablets. The memorial was unveiled on 1st August 1921. The base stone and shaft of the cross apparently date back to the 7th century when it stood in the market place before being moved to the church. The ex-servicemen then restored it and moved it to a more predominant position as a war memorial.
