Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2007

The memorial stands in Denwick Lane, Alnwick and takes the form of a stone column surmounted by lamp. The column stands on a large stone pedestal which in turn bears the bronze plaques with names and inscription. There are four bronze figures, in mourning pose, one in each corner, which surmount the pedestal. There are 189 names for World War 1 and 76 for World War 2, one for Korea and one for Northern Ireland. None of these have yet been transcribed except for the Korean and Northern ireland casualties. The memorial was unveiled on 11th November 1922 by the Duke of Northumberland. The designers were Messrs. Hicks and Charleswood and the sculptors Ralph Hedley and Sons. Details appeared in the Morpeth Herald 13th February 1920 and the Alnwick and Coiunty Gazette 21st February 1920.
