Rockcliffe War Memorial - April 2017
Situated in the grounds of the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, the memorial is difficult to photograph as it is positioned very close to the Church railings. Alexander P Kapp was possibly more successful when he visited in 2008 - see: NY3561 : The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Rockcliffe and Cargo, War Memorial .
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
