War Memorial, Coxhoe


The war memorial at Coxhoe is located outside the Village Hall on Church Street. The memorial was unveiled in June 1922 by Sergeant William Wilson DCM. It commemorates 97 local servicemen who lost their lives in the First World War. The large plaque, sculpted by AH Borrowdale , was originally located on a wall of the Literary Institute opposite the school and Methodist Church.[1] By 1939, it had been detached and raised as a freestanding memorial in it's current location. Following the Second World War, 28 names of those who died in that conflict were added. The memorial is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
