Cenotaph


The Cenotaph in Jarrow is located outside Palmer Community Hospital, just off Station Street. The memorial was commissioned by the Palmer Shipbuilding and Iron Co. (1,543 employees from Palmer's joined the forces in the First World War, and 140 were killed or died from wounds.) It was sculpted by R.R.Beall using stone from Greenlaw Quarry, Northumberland. The memorial was unveiled on the 6th of October 1921 by Mr. G. Mure Ritchie (Chairman of Palmer's) and dedicated by Rev. E.M. Williams, Rector of Christ Church. An estimated, 5,000 people attended the unveiling ceremony. It commemorates 185 local servicemen who lost their lives in the First World War. The Cenotaph is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
