Fleetwood Memorial Park

I visited Fleetwood Memorial Park at the same time as I visited the other sites in Fleetwood. This is an overview of the park and some general pictures, but I have included more detailed pictures and a list of the fallen at the Datastore here. A very good history of the park can be found here.

The entrance Gates

Lots of links and little substance. This memorial has been well researched but I am sure the names have never been published. The Imperial War Museum reference is 42700 I do believe the park is going to be revived and have some restoration work done. Time for a revisit when that happens.

My links:
St Peter's in Fleetwood and the memorial.
