War Memorial, Hoole Road, Chester
There are five War Memorials in Hoole dedicated to the memory of the men of Hoole who lost their lives in the two World Wars. Three of the memorials are Rolls of Honour, two are in All Saints Church, the third was in the Elms Town Hall. When the Elms was demolished, it was removed and re-hung in the Hoole Community Centre above the fireplace in the main hall.
The fourth memorial is heard but never seen. It is the tolling bell in the tower of All Saints Church. It was added to the existing five bells in 1925 and is inscribed with the names of the dead of the First World War so that their names ring out for ever.
The fifth memorial is probably the most widely known. It is the cross on Hoole Road opposite the Elms site. The cross, its matching base and memorial wall are built of red sandstone from St. Bees, Cumberland. It was designed by Mr. R Boot and was unveiled at a ceremony on 11th. September 1949 by Major General G M Elliot.
