War Memorial, Seaton Delaval


The war memorial in Seaton Delaval was unveiled on the 2nd of September 1922 by Mr. John Charlton, Headmaster of Schools in Seaton Delaval, dedicated by Dr. Wild, Bishop of Newcastle, and blessed by Canon W.E. Jackson. The memorial is inscribed with the names of 73 local servicemen who lost their lives in the First World War.[1] The obelisk was paid for by public subscription, and sculpted by DW Forster of North Shields; and the railings enclosing the monument were wrought by Hosley Bros, Iron Founders of North Shields. The memorial was initially located by the railway station on a site donated by the Seaton Delaval Coal Company. Then in the 1930s the memorial was moved a short distance to the Memorial Garden on the east side of Double Row opposite the schools. In 1965 the memorial was moved to it's present location by Elsdon Avenue. On the 10th of October 1999 a roll of honour of 32 local men and women who died in the Second World War was added to the memorial, unveiled Councillor Margaret A Parker. A Millennium Garden was planted around the memorial at that time. The memorial is Grade II listed.[2]
