Chevington and Broomhill War Memorial


Chevington and Broomhill War Memorial is located by the B1330 road, in the north-east corner of the churchyard of St John the Devine's Church in South Broomhill / Red Row. The memorial was unveiled on the 27th of November 1921 by Fred J. Hemsley (who had served in the War) and dedicated by the vicar, Rev. W. King. The memorial commemorates 96 local servicemen who lost their lives in the First World War. The memorial cross was designed and sculpted by J.P. Whittle of Amble, who also made the Embleton Memorial Cross. Following the Second World War, the names of 34 who died in that conflict were added. The memorial was restored in 2003 after which it was re-dedicated by the Bishop of Newcastle. The memorial is Grade II listed.
