WHITCHURCH WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2021

The memorial is located at the junction of Station Road and Queen's Road, Whitchurch, Shropshire. It takes the form of a white, Hollington stone, obelisk on a square base with the names of the men inscribed upon it. The ground is enclosed by a stone wall with entrances from each street and laid out with trees and shrubs. The architect was Mr. W. Webb. The memorial was unveiled 11 November 1920 by Rev. Sydney Dugdale. There are 176 names for World War 1 and 20 for World War 2.

Extract from Crewe Chronicle - Saturday 20 November 1920, page 5:

WHITCHURCH.

WAR MEMORIAL UNVEILING.—The handsome war memorial, erected at a cost of £1,200, is now practically completed, and the unveiling ceremony took place on Armistice Day. The site on Station-road is a commanding one, and the monument itself very suitable, consisting of a 7-feet square base surmounted by a white stone obelisk some 25 feet high. On the front, in gilt lettering, is the inscription: “In proud and grateful memory of the men of Whitchurch who have their lives in the great war, 1914-1918.” “Faithful onto death.” There are 152 names of officers and men. A brief united service was held in the Parish Church, where Nonconformist ministers took part, probably for the first time. A procession was formed at the church gates. At the memorial great crowds had gathered. The unveiling ceremony was performed by the Rev. Sydney Dugdale, for ten years rector, whose own son's name was among those on the stone. Hymns were sung and “The Last Post” sounded, and then numbers of magnificent wreaths were laid on the base of the memorial, and the ceremony ended with a hymn and the National Anthem.
