Manchester railwaymen War Memorial at Piccadilly

Manchester railwaymen who died fighting in the First World War are honoured by a memorial which was unveiled in May 2016 between platforms 10 and 11 at Piccadilly railway station. LinkExternal link

The men, aged between 18 and 45, all worked for the London and North Western Railway at the stationís Goods Depot. The memorial replaces a bronze plaque which disappeared 50 years ago during a station renovation.

The memorial, made in Cardiff, features all of the names of the 87 men on three sides - with the front dedicated to "the memory of Manchester Employees of the London and North Western Railway Company who sacrificed their lives in the service of their country during the Great War as a grateful tribute to all those who served".
