War Memorial


The Cenotaph in Whitley Bay is located on the Links, by the Empress Gardens, close to Spanish City. The memorial was officially unveiled on the 15th July 1922 by Duke of Northumberland, and dedicated by Rev. F.L. Cattell, Vicar of St. Paul's Church. The memorial bears the names of 208 local men who lost their lives in the First World War. Names of 141 local servicemen who died in the Word War 2 were added later. The monument is Grade II listed. Metal thieves stole bronze plaques inscribed with the names of the war dead c.2009 - these have since been replaced and the monument restored.
