Memorial Description

Cenotaph 22 feet (12m) high on circular base 8m diameter. At the top there is Greek key pattern decoration, below which is a bronze laurel ribbon round the top, from which a bronze wreath hangs on all four sides. Twelve bronze plaques bear the names, 4 of which are 45.5cm high x 112cm wide, 4 are 27cm high x 131cm wide and 4 are 26.5cm high x 101cm wide. The lettering is in raised Roman capitals. Each panel has a raised fluted edge, inside which is a narrow patterned border. The memorial stands inside white granite bollards which at one time had metal chains between them.

Materials used

White Dalbeattie granite, bronze plaques, later replaced by stainless steel. Another source says Aberdeen granite.

Inscription

a. Their bodies are / buried in peace / but their name / liveth for evermore.
The following have made the great sacrifice

Names

Who commissioned

b. Whitley Bay Welcome Home and Remembrance Fund.

Cost

Cenotaph cost £1,639 19s 6d.

How money was raised

a. £7,000 by Public subscription, £1,000 by Local Authority. 90% of this was invested for the benefit of disabled servicemen.

Present condition

Vandalised in 1995, when four plates with names on were removed, just before Remembrance Day. The plaques were replaced and rededicated in July 1998

Sculptor, Artist or Designer

Designed by Architects Messrs. Harrison, Ash and Blythe, Newcastle. Constructors were Messrs. J.H. Robinson, Meldon. The contractors for the granite were The Improved Road Construction Co., Newcastle.

Ownership and maintenance

The memorial was handed over to the Whitley and Monkseaton Urban District Council at the unveiling ceremony 5/7/1922 "to be kept for the inhabitants for all time".

Notes

1. This memorial was the subject of the Whitley Bay Marden Bridge School entry for the ANLHS' Janet Brown Trophy for a Schools Group Project Competition for the Morpeth Northumbrian Gathering in 1992. It received second prize.

2. The original idea was that 10% of funds collected would be spent on the memorial, the main amount being administered as a special fund by a Committee. £7,000 was collected, and £700 was not sufficient for the Cenotaph, so it was agreed to take the balance from the main fund. They had originally hoped to raise £10,000, the bulk of which would be used for dependants and welfare purposes.

3. “The horse would do well for a war memorial; it would stand still for months”. So commented the owner of this particular animal at the Whitley Bay Sessions yesterday. Nevertheless, the magistrates fined the driver for leaving it unattended.” (Newcastle Daily Journal 8/4/1920)

4. Following the 1996 vandalism, the following information appeared in the North Shields News Guardian 17/10/1996.
(a) the renewed plates would be of stainless steel, and further names added.
(b) the “thieves must have got a nasty surprise, since the original scrolls were made of an alloy that had little scrap value”.

5. The replacement of the five plaques was due, among others, to the efforts of Mr. R. Nugent working in conjunction with North Tyneside Council.

6. The newspaper report for the laying of the foundation stones states: “There is not a great deal of time left to build the memorial, as the unveiling by the Duke of Northumberland is expected to take place on November 11th”.

7. The two men who laid the foundations stones, Mrs. James Noble, Chairman of the War Memorial Committee and Cllr. J. Walton (Chairman of the District Council) were each given a silver trowel as a memento.

8. The decision to unveil the memorial free of debt by taking money from the funds raised was taken at a public meeting in July 1922. Mr. Saint, supporting the proposal said “If the town’s meeting which originally decided that 90% should go to the widows and orphans, and 10% to the war memorial, could have foreseen what would happen, they would have made the respective portions different, and not given quite so much to the civil fund”.
Mr. Albrecht, who opposed the motion, said that “it was a proposal to take the money out of the pockets of the widows and orphans of those who fell”.

9. Mr. Joseph Henry Meldon Robson of Morpeth was examined for bankruptcy in 1923. He said that he had lost out on contracts to erect memorials at Whitley Bay and Morpeth. Morpeth Herald 5/10/1923

10. Among the original suggestions were a hospital; a Y.M.C.A. building; Cottage homes; convalescent home; scholarships in the secondary schools; memorial hall;

11. It was estimated that 10,000 people attended the unveiling.

12. Ernest Watson, who is listed on the memorial as being in the 10th N.F. was in the 11th N.F. (Andrew Brooks).
