War Memorial, Leasingthorne

The war memorial in Leasingthorne is a stone obelisk located opposite Eden Terrace. The memorial was unveiled on the 12th of September 1925 by Colonel E Vaux and dedicated by Reverend D Perrott. It commemorates 17 local servicemen who died during the First World War. The names of six local men who died in the Second World War were added after that conflict.[1] The memorial is Grade II listed. The memorial and surrounding railings were restored following a £7,930 grant awarded by the War Memorials Trust in 2017.[2]
