The Morecambe and Heysham War Memorial stands on the Promenade at Morecambe Lancashire.

It has two inscriptions in black lettering, after which are listed the names of those remembered.

The memorial remembers 216 men who died in the First World War, 180 in the Second World War and 1 in the Korean War.

The war memorial, made of bronze and granite, was completed in 1921 and designed by T H Mawson.

A bronze lion sits atop a stepped base. On 20 January 1993 the monument was registered as a Grade II structure.

Thanks for posting that. I lived in Morecambe for a year when I was at Uni, I remember the memorial well.
