Description
Over £30,000 was raised in Southport to commemorate the Great War in three ways: the erection of the Monument (WMR 1228); the building of a new outpatients' block at Southport Infirmary; and the provision of some educational grants for children of the fallen. The block was demolished with the rest of the Infirmary, but the commemorative tablet was retained, and was refurbished before being installed beside the entrance to the Regional Spinal Injuries Centre of the Southport and Formby Hospital in 1998. The tablet is sandstone, with incised lettering painted black. There is small metal plaque fixed to the wall above it recording its rededication.
Inscription
On the original tablet: St. John War Memorial/ Opened on the 18th day of November 1923/ by/ The Earl of Derby K.G./ Minister for War.
