Re-Dedication of Lanchester's War Memorial
Rededication of Lanchester War Memorial

The Parish Council and members of the community have been working for some time to have the names of fallen soldiers added to the Village Green War Memorial.

The original War Memorial was Dedicated in 1951. The War Memorial was then moved to its current position in 1972.

The works to the War Memorial were undertaken by Art of Stone Memorials. 130 names are engraved on the new marble panels.

The project has been made possible through a grant from the County Council Neighbourhood Budget. The Parish Council have also committed funds to enable the project to progress.

The Rededication of the War Memorial took place on Friday 19 October 2018 at 2pm. The three Churches in the Parish led the service. The Lord Lieutenant of County Durham, Mrs Sue Snowdon was in attendance.
