BELLINGHAM BOER WAR MEMORIAL

Boer War Detailed Information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2006

This Boer War memorial was originally in the cross roads at the centrer of the village but became a traffic hazard and was moved to Manchester Square outside the Rose and Crown Public House. in the 1950's. The memorial is a statue of a Fusilier in full South African kit holding a rifle. He is set on a stone plinth within a canopied setting with four pillars. There is a polished panel on the front, probably granite, bearing the names and inscriptions and a further panel with additional names offset. There was originally a fountain with a light atop the memorial but this has now been removed. There are 33 names with the group (e.g. Yeomanry, Volunteers), surname and initials. The memorial itself was erected around 1903 and re-erected when moved in the 1950s. For ease of reading the names have been sorted into alphabetical order here.
