Stratford-upon-Avon First World War Memorial.

 

The war memorial in Stratford-upon-Avon was originally located on Bridge Street and was unveiled on 14 February 1922. By 1932 the memorial had been relocated to Bancroft Gardens next to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, and was finally moved to the Garden of Remembrance, which opened in 1954, and is co-located with the Second World War Memorial.
