The bronze memorial tablet under the huge wall map (SJ8399 : Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway Tiled Mural, Manchester Victoria Station) at Manchester Victoria Station was erected in 1922. It is inscribed:

THIS TABLET IS ERECTED TO PERPETUATE THE MEMORY OF THE MEN OF THE LANCASHIRE AND YORKSHIRE RAILWAY WHOSE NAMES ARE RECORDED AND GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR THEIR KING AND COUNTRY IN THE GREAT WAR 1914 - 1919

Relief panels at each end of the name panels depict (right) the mounted figure of St George slaying the dragon, and (left) the winged St Michael with his foot on the neck of the fallen Satan.
