The Wayside Cross 

The Wayside Cross sited on the western boundary of St Lawrence Churchyard in Stratford sub Castle, was made a Grade 2 listed Memorial by Historic England in 2017, as part of a centenary project to ensure that war memorials are protected and the people they commemorate are remembered. Historic England is aiming to list more than 2,500 over the First World War centenary period 2014-2018.

The monument provides a focus for the annual Remembrance Sunday commemorations..

 

Nine local men were lost during WW1 and are remembered on the Wayside Cross. Details on The Stratford Nine webpage.
