War Memorial




Stands in the front garden of the doctor's surgery. Unveiled on 15th September 1923 by John Morrison of Cramlington Coal Co. Marble statue of a woman, 3m high, in a long dress and cloak with bare feet. One hand is on an anchor. Sandstone pedestal on a stepped base. The statue has been moved so that it did not block the entrance to the new surgery. It was originally on a two-tier sandstone platform. The figure might be St. Barbara, patron saint of miners {Jack Grieves, NEWMP}. English Heritage say it is likely to represent Hope. "THIS WAR MEMORIAL AND HOSPITAL ARE ERECTED IN HONOURED MEMORY OF OUR MEN WHO FELL IN THE GREAT WAR 1914-1918 {58 names} and 1939-1945" {20 names}. LISTED GRADE 2
