WESTHOUGHTON WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 & Afghanistan - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2009

The memorial stands at the juction of Market Street and Church Street in a paved area, outside Westhoughton Clinic, Market Street, Westhoughton. It taks the form of a Fleury Cross on hexagonal column mounted on stepped plinth with the World War I names in black lettering on a six-sided base standing in paved area partially enclosed by ornamental low screen wall also containing a dedication and names engraved. The column of the cross bears a carved dedication at the halfway point. Behind the World War I memorial stands a memorial stone commemorating the World War II fallen and to the right of this a further dedication to one person lost in Afghanistan. The memorial was dedicated and unveiled by Colonel Crofield, D.S.O. 3 August 1923 and rededicated 7 November 1948, it was unveiled by Lt. Col. R.W. Greenhalgh. There are 197 names for World War I and 109 names for World War 2 plus one for Afghanistan. The memorial originally cost £1,800 which was raised by public subscription. In 2014 Westhoughton Town Council spent £1,600 on installing new handrails to make the memorial more accessible for older people in the November commemorations, also in In 2014the War Memorials Trust offered a grant of £385 towards the conservation of this memorial which was cleaned using low pressure water cleaning and the letters were then re-painted using black enamel paint. Finally theft deterrent SmartWater was applied to the metal elements of the memorial.

Note: The names here were transcribed from photographs which were not always fuilly in focus and the memorial at this point in time had not been refurbished so the lettering was not necessarily the best. Eventually the names will be corrected but for the time being the World War 1 names may have errors in them.
