World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and Copyright © Michael Peck 2007
additional information Roy Bell

The memorial was to be found in the entrance hall to Foxhills Institute, Ferry Road, Scunthorpe but now resides on an outside wall of the North Lincolnshire Museum, in Oswald Road, Scunthorpe. It takes the form of a plain rectangular metal plaque set within a wooden frame with and inscription in relief. There are 52 names listed for World War 1. The club was originally the Lysaghts Steelworks Social Club. There is a further memorial in the Foxhills Institute, Ferry Road, Scunthorpe previously called the Lysaghts Steelworks Social Club. This takes the form of a plaque mounted in a wooden frame that lists the men from World War 1 as on the other memorial but in addition there are names for World War 2.

John Lysaght and Co. was an iron and steel company established in Bristol, with later operations in Wolverhampton, Newport, and Scunthorpe. The Scunthorpe John Lysaghts Steelworks started production in 1912 when the company ended its reliance on bought-in steel by opening its first steelworks, Normanby Iron Works, at Normanby Park, Scunthorpe; this was the only works to be built in Scunthorpe as a fully integrated Iron & Steel Works. Its weekly output of 6,500 tons was shipped to Newport for rolling. The number of blast furnaces at Scunthorpe increased to four in 1917. In 1920, Guest Keen and Nettlefolds (GKN) acquired the John Lysaght company, including its works at Newport, Bristol, and Scunthorpe; the Scunthorpe Works became the Normanby Park Works but was still known as John Lysaght's Works. The name John Lysaght remained in use by GKN as late as 1966, for its works at Newport and Scunthorpe. The Scunthorpe Works had more than 5,000 people on its payroll in March 1965.
