Felton District War Memorial


The war memorial in Felton is a 5m tall Celtic cross located by the roadside on the north bank of the River Coquet. The memorial was unveiled on the 17th of October 1920 by Colonel EPA Riddell DSO, in commemoration of 40 local servicemen from the Felton district (Felton, Thirston, Acton, Eshott & Swarland) who lost their lives in the First World War. Following the Second World War the names of a further 12 men were added to the memorial. John C. Riddell of Barrasford, Colonel Riddell’s nephew, unveiled the additions on the 10th of July 1949.[1,2] The memorial was restored in 1995. Felton War Memorial is Grade II listed.
