Haverigg War Memorial


The war memorial in Haverigg is located in the churchyard of St Luke's Church. The memorial was unveiled on the 12th of September 1920 by Colonel D. J. Mason of Workington. It was built to commemorate 35 local servicemen who lost their lives in the First World War. A new bell for the church was also installed as part of the memorial scheme the following year.[1] Later, the memorial was also dedicated to 9 local men killed in the Second World War. Haverigg War Memorial was restored and re-dedicated by Rev. Carl Carter, in a service on the 24th of September, 2015. During the service children from Haverigg Primary School each read out the name of one the 44 men who are remembered on the memorial.[2] The memorial is Grade II listed.
