New Crosspool Memorial

In remembrance of those whom we knew, those whose memory we treasure and for all who lived and died in the service of their country and mankind, the people of Crosspool raised sufficient funds to purchase a Memorial that belongs to all.


This unique memorial, to those whose life was touched by conflict, was recently installed in the grounds of Tapton Congregational Church on Manchester Road.

A short service of dedication, quiet contemplation and reflection, will be held (hopefully outside) at a date to be announced.
