On land above Park Road, Dukinfield.  Access gained by climbing four flights of steps opposite Park Mill.

History:

This memorial was unveiled by Captain George Heathcote on September 11, 1920, at a cost of nearly £500, raised by public subscription within Tame Valley.

The monument, which stands on an elevated site, facing east, overlooking Park Road, is of white Carrara Marble.  It is surmounted by a cross, with the figure of an angel and a wreath of victory, and it is 15ft high.

The base of the memorial bears the inscription:

Erected by the residents of Park Road, Dukinfield, in 1920

The pedestal has four sides, three of which are 'In Honour', bearing the names of the men and women who served. The fourth is 'In Memory' of those who were killed.  Further names were added at the end of the 1939-45 conflict.
