Lytham St Anne's War Memorial

The Grade II listed LinkExternal link War Memorial in Ashton Gardens was designed by Sir Walter Marsden and unveiled on Sunday October 12th 1924.

The memorial is notable not only for its figures in the round, but also for the narrative depicted in bronze plaques. The plaques show a succession of scenes, from a soldier leaving his wife and child to the weary return of a group of soldiers. Also of note is that the soldiers are carrying the body of a dead comrade as with the depiction of women, depictions of the dead are rare on war memorials.
