Cumwhinton War Memorial

  • Description

    ".....Cumwhinton War Memorial commemorates 10 local servicemen who fell (and 45 who served) in the First World War and one man who fell in the Second World War. It was made by J W Reed, Sculptor, of Newcastle, and erected by Mr J Miller of Cumwhinton. It was unveiled on 30 April 1922 by Mrs Coulson of Cumwhinton. The stone walled enclosure was presumably part of the original design as its semi-circular plan can be seen on the 1925 Ordnance Survey map....."
