Brancepeth War Memorial

Brancepeth War Memorial is located in the churchyard of the St Brandon's Church in Brancepeth. The memorial is Grade 2 listed on the National Heritage List for England.

"Brancepeth War Memorial was unveiled on 2 June 1921 by Lt-Col Hugh Bowes RD DL and dedicated by the Venerable PA Derry, Archdeacon of Auckland, in commemoration of 16 local servicemen who died during the First World War. The stone for the memorial, and the stonemasons' labour, had been donated by Viscount Boyne of Brancepeth Castle and the remaining costs of £148 12s 8d were raised by public subscription in the estate village. The cross was designed by WH Wood of Newcastle. Following the Second World War the details of one soldier who died in that conflict were added to the memorial." (Historic England)
