Geocache Description:

War Memorial cache #32 We will remember them ~ Easington Lane.


This memorial was unveiled in 1921 by Lord Joicey. This Grade II listed memorial is an impressive tall six stage structure with a clock tower on the 5th stage. It was built from the stone of Hetton Hall which had been demolished and cost £2000 to build.

The original inscription was "In memory of the fallen and in honour of the returned sailors and soldiers of Easington Lane and Elemore Colliery who fought in the Great War 1914-1919" but this was adapted to In memory of the fallen and in honour of the returned members of all H.M. Forces of Easington Lane who served in the Two World Wars.

There are literally thousands of War memorials around the country. WW1 Memorials were usually raised through public subscription to remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. This year 2014 is also the centenary of the start of the First World War it's about time there was a series dedicated to War Memorials. There is an un-numbered series in Scotland called Lest we forget. The name of this series We Shall remember them, was chosen from the very moving poem “For the Fallen” by Laurence Binyon. It is well worth searching out and reading.”
