I was quite surprised to find the Garden of Remembrance in Lichfield, considering I was not looking for it in the first place.
The War Memorial was designed by Charles Edward Bateman, and the garden was opened on 20 October 1920.
After the Second World War additional plaques were added to encompass the casualties from that conflict.
There is one statue on the memorial, and curiously another statue on the library which may or may not tie into the memorial.
There is one memorial which I found on the station which I want to include here, even though he did not come from this city but is worthy of being remembered.
From what I could find, Private WR Davies was 19 when he was shot dead by the IRA, in an attack at the station where he had been waiting for a train, to take him back home to Wales after completing his first 12 weeks of training.
