SK1814 : Royal and Sun Alliance War Memorials, National Memorial Arboretum

taken 7 years ago, near to Alrewas, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Royal and Sun Alliance War Memorials, National Memorial Arboretum
Royal and Sun Alliance War Memorials, National Memorial Arboretum
Two large carved memorials from insurance companies that have amalgamated with other companies and moved to new premises. These elegant memorials remember members of staff who served and fell during two world wars.

The white memorial nearest to the camera commemorates the those who served from the following insurance companies:
London & Lancashire,
Law Accident,
Standard Marine,
Law Union & Rock,
The Marine

The black memorial behind is from the Phoenix Assurance Company (closer view in SK1814 : Phoenix Staff War Memorial).

I think that both memorials used to stand at the Royal Sun & Alliance training centre at Ledsham prior to moving to the NMA
