The Cenotaph in Hexham is located on east side of The Sele / Abbey Park, by the Beaumont Street entrance. The white Portland stone memorial was unveiled on the 29th September 1921 by the Duke of Gloucester and dedicated by the Rev. J.V.C. Farquhar. It was built to commemorate 232 local servicemen and 1 civilian who lost their lives in the First World War. Later, the names of 92 servicemen and 3 civilians killed in the Second World War were added to the monument. The Cenotaph is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
