The Project

 

Our Project is to design and build a War Memorial in the Memorial Gardens at Ramsbottom.
The memorial will bear the names of Armed Service and Merchant Service Personnel from the Ramsbottom Urban District who have given their lives since the start of WW1.


Research since August 2011 has revealed over 500 names and as such there is insufficient room for them on the existing Towns Cenotaph  Memorial.


Our mission is to design and build a War Memorial on which we could have these names engraved.

 

By having such a memorial we will be recording, for posterity, a permanent visible and tangible record of the names of those Armed Service and Merchant Service Personnel from Ramsbottom, who gave their lives for their Country since the start of WW1 through to future conflicts. The memorial will form an integral part of Remembrance events.

This project will provide the only comprehensive listing of the war dead of Ramsbottom.
