Description
Square pillar decorated with wreaths of laurel, on a plinth, bearing a bronze plaque of WW1 names on each face, with a 3-stepped base. Behind the pillar is a wall bearing the WW2 names on granite panels. The memorial site is within a railed enclosure. Note this memorial has moved at least twice since detailed tracking of it started in 2007 (although information from a town resident is that the pre 1999 location was the original one. Unfortunately the images of these relocations, which the project had, have been mislaid since 2017 due to external technical issues.

  • The Scotsman - Tuesday 25 October 1921 www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/viewer/bl/0000540/19211025/265/0008 PORT GLASGOW. — In presence of the largest assembly ever gathered in Port-Glasgow the war memorial was unveiled by Sir Hugh Shaw Stewart, Vice-Lieutenant for the county of Renfrew . . Provost Mackie intimated that 3000 young men had gone from Port-Glasgow to the country's call. Of that number 319 officers and men had returned maimed and wounded, and 300 had paid the supreme sacrifice. The memorial takes the form of an obelisk, with four bronze plates bearing the names of the fallen. The memorial has been erected, in Fore Street, at a cost of upwards of £3000.
