War Memorial, Ambleside

The war memorial in Ambleside is located on a prominent raised plot in the churchyard of St Mary's Church. The memorial was built to commemorate 68 local servicemen who lost their lives in the First World War. It was unveiled on the 6th of March 1921 by Lt. Colonel George Gateny and dedicated by the Bishop of Barrow.[1] Later, the names of 26 local men who were killed in the Second World War were added to the memorial.
