War Memorials

War memorials were mainly constructed after WWI to commemorate the troops who gave their lives in the war. Many were then updated after WWII. Some war memorials date back to the Boer War. Almost every town and village in Britain has a War Memorial. They take many forms, the commonest being an obelisk, a cross or statue of a soldier. Some commemorate the inhabitants of a place, some are for schools and others are for companies or Military groupings.
Many memorials are grade II listed, 61 are II* listed, LinkExternal link*_listed_war_memorials_in_England

Crawley Memorial Gardens

Shortly after the end of the First World War in 1921, the local community raised the funds to purchase the land for the Memorial Gardens, so that it could be kept as a public recreation ground, in memory of those who lost their lives during the Great War. The Memorial Gardens are now held in Trust by Crawley Borough Council. LinkExternal link
