Return to The War Memorials of Herbert Baker

Richmond War Memorial, North Yorkshire. Unveiled 23 October 1921. Newly listed at Grade II. This Staindrop stone memorial, with its small cross on an octagonal shaft, remembers the 101 local servicemen who died in the First World War. Their names are incised on the stone octagonal base, along with with a carved motif of a Crusader warship, a device that Baker was to use elsewhere. The memorial stands in front of the 15th century Grey Friars Tower – all that remains of a Franciscan friary founded in 1257.
