1. One of the original ideas for a memorial proposed in 1919 was a municipal building containing public baths, swimming pool, gymnasium and assembly rooms, etc. This prompted a letter from somebody calling himself “South Wind” suggesting that 50 houses should be built to house war widows and their families, which would also be repaid by the rental.
It was reported at a meeting that there had been a lot of very strong criticism of the proposals; one of the objections was that the scheme for public utilities would cost £1,000 annual expenditure.

2. A Welcome Home Committee was to be established, but there seems to have been dissent as to who should be represented on it.

3. “With regard to the ‘Mystery Medal’ article dated Thursday, July 9, I can provide a little further information. Miners from Ashington Colliery who served in WWI were awarded this medal upon returning home, along with a scroll. I also possess this medal, but not the scroll”. (Letter to News Post Leader 3/9/1998 from Mrs B. Simpson, Newbiggin by the Sea.

4. In 1999 the public’s opinion was to be sought by Wansbeck District Council for another new memorial since the sculpture was not "representative of the era or purpose for which it was intended to portray". The memorial had been described as a “hideosity”. (News Post Leader 7th October 1999)

5. “Members of the Royal British Legion have demanded that the ‘monstrosity’ of a war memorial in Ashington Town Centre be replaced with a more fitting figure of remembrance. . . .When the present monstrosity appeared we were shocked and dismayed. We protested bitterly to the council but were told it was artistic licence and we couldn’t do anything about it as the money had been spent. . . . .The present memorial was erected in 1982 . . . . .the general view of members was that the present structure was obnoxious and an insult to the memory of the men and women . . . Wansbeck District Council said they have already carried out a survey to test public opinion and the results would be revealed at a committee meeting early in the new year.” News Post Leader 23/12/1999

6. Listing was applied for on 1st August 2005, along with its replacement statue. The response from English Heritage was “as this was erected in 1983 and substantially altered in 2001, it is not 30 years old and cannot yet be considered for listing”.

7. 1914-1918 MEMORIAL As soon as the Hospital Wards had been built, a letter appeared in the newspapers appealing for funds for a War Memorial. When it was pointed out that the War Memorial was, in fact, the hospital ward which bore bronze plaques, the response was yes, but where could they have a Remembrance Day Service and lay wreaths?

8. This monument was universally detested. The sculpture has been described as "coat hangers". tuning forks and an egg whisk.

9. The bronze panels for 1914-18 and 1939-45 were originally outside the Memorial Ward at Ashington Hospital. When the ward was demolished, the panels were placed on the wall of the Cricket Club car park until they were incorporated in this memorial.

10. The siting of the monument here also caused dissent, since a place in front of the hospital had been dedicated and tarmac laid so that people attending the Remembrance Day services could be dry underfoot.

11. In 1925, the proposed new alternative monument was to be built near the Priestman Institute, would be 32 feet high, with the figures of a soldier and a sailor on the top, and the names of the fallen on the base, probably in bronze.

12. Following 1939-45, there was a proposal to erect a large Public Hall and Library, the Library part of which was to be the Town's 1939-45 Memorial. It was to be situated at the junction of North Seaton Road and Green Lane. The design was to be open to competition, the prize proposed was £200. The names from 1899-1902 and 1914-18 were to be added to this new memorial.

13. The new plaques were to be hung with the 1914-18 ones in the War Memorial Ward at the Hospital. Those from 1914-18 were to be cleaned at the same time.

14.. In 2014, when plans were made to create a new Memorial Garden, a decision was taken to replace the memorial altogether, because so many names were missing and there were a lot of errors.
