War Memorial, Maryport


War Memorial Gardens in Maryport are located on Netherhall Corner, by the junction of Ellenburgh Road and the A596. The Celtic Cross stands in front of a red sandstone wall which incorportates 3 bronze plaques engraved with the names of 276 local servicemen who lost their lives in the First World War. The memorial was unveiled on the 20th of November 1921, by Lt Col G.J. Pocklington-Senhouse and dedicated by Revd. J A Richards. An obelisk was later added to the site to commemorate 91 servicemen who died in the Second World War. There is also a plaque for a civilian killed in that war. The Park gates and railings are also part of the memorial.[1]
