THE ROCKCLIFFE CENTRE - Rockcliffe Village

  War Memorial No 72 Rockcliffe Community Hall

  

Rockcliffe Community Board

This simple oak panel, which we will find within the vestibule of Rockcliffe Community Hall, includes both a memorial to those who left and never returned, and a tribute to the many from the district of Rockcliffe and Cargo, who served their country and were fortunate, despite varying degrees of wounds to mind and body, to return to their families.

This panel was first displayed in the old War Memorial Hall, once the village reading rooms and now a private house. It was moved to the Community Hall and re-dedicated on the opening of the new facility.

The War Memorial in the nearby churchyard, no 58 in this series, commemorates those from Rockcliffe and Cargo who did not return to their families. It bears the names of casualties of both the Great War and WW2. An additional narrative tells of each in greater detail.
