War Memorial at St Peter's Church
War Memorial at St Peter's Church
This war memorial is situated in front of St Peter’s Church, Lord Street. It commemorates the members of the parish who were killed or missing in the First World War. It is possible that this was the first war memorial that was erected in Fleetwood LinkExternal link , pre-dating the town’s “official” war memorial (SD3247 : Fleetwood War Memorial) which was unveiled in 1927 at Memorial Park.

The memorial is in the form of a stone cross, with a two-stepped circular base surmounted by a rectangular plinth, tapering shaft and cross. The inscription is in relief on the sides of the plinth (SD3347 : St Peter's War Memorial (inscription)). There are two figures of angels, one holding a wreath (SD3347 : St Peter War Memorial (stone angel)) and one in a praying position, that surmount the left and right hand sides of the plinth.
