Geocache Description:

War Memorial cache #117 We will remember them ~ Lindisfarne

A multi-cache set for this Lutyens designed War Memorial, recently upgraded by Historic England in November 2015 from Grade II to Grade II Star.


There are literally thousands of War memorials around the country. Memorials were usually raised through public subscription to remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom of our country. The year 2014 was the centenary of the start of the First World War, so it was about time there was a series dedicated to War Memorials. There is an un-numbered series in Scotland called Lest-we-forget and another called Poppies on Parade. Any of these will happily be added to the War Memorial Series, just ask for a number. The name of this series “We will remember them”, was chosen from the very moving poem “For the Fallen” by Laurence Binyon. It is well worth searching out and reading.”
 

War Memorial Lindisfarne

 

The Lindisfarne War Memorial stands on The Heugh overlooking the Priory with great views across to Lindisfarne Castle. Sir Edwin Lutyens was a key figure in determining how the missing and the dead should be commemorated; this memorial is one of 15 war crosses that Lutyens designed. It was carved in Doddington Stone by Mr Tully of nearby Belford. Lutyens chose this stone himself to chime with that of the priory. Lutyens was already familiar with Lindisfarne having worked on the castle's renovation in the Arts and Crafts style for Edward Hudson.

The final location is at N55 40.ABC  W1 48.DEF , where:

A = The number of letters in the Christian name of Mr Henderson.

B = The number of letters in the Christian name of Mr Patterson.

C = The number of letters in Joseph's occupation.

D = The number of letters in the Christian name of the Stoker minus the number of letters in his surname.

E = The number of letters in James B.'s surname

F = The number of Mr Morley Crossman's preceding initials multiplied by 2.

Your checksum should be 28
