Catholic War Memorial

This is the second Roman Catholic war memorial I have found in Lancashire. It is in the churchyard of St Wilfred's church in Longridge. In strong sunlight, it is spectacularly white. The detail is very fine. Note the hobnails on the soles of the soldier's boots. The fourth image shows the names of those who died in the Second World War which were added much later.

Welcome to the Graveyard Detective

An illustrated look at the World of Graveyards and Cemeteries. There are many Stories behind the Stones that Stand in them. Who knows what we might find?
