Condition
History
By 2015 the memorial was severely fractured and at risk of collapse, partly due to corrosion of the ferrous rod in the shaft, leading to its expansion and thus stone fracture. In 2018 a £5,720 War Memorials Trust Grant was made towards the repair costs. The memorial was dismantled, repaired and rebuilt, also steam cleaned and repointed with lime mortar. The damage was so severe that some parts of the shaft and cross had to be replaced with new stone. Both the dedication and names have eroded away and have not been renewed in these works, although the dedication is known through archival research; MEMORIAL HAS BEEN MOVED TWICE. FIRST TIME in 1978 DUE TO DEVELOPMENT OF A ROW OF SHOPS IN BROAD STREET ON LAND CEDED BY THE CHURCH, after demolition of the old church and building of a new church (was relocated to Church Road) AND the SECOND TIME in 1992 DUE TO THE BUILDING OF A NEW COMMITTEE ROOM FOR THE CHURCH.
