2. Seaton Burn War Memorial

 

Seaton Burn War Memorial

The War Memorial was opened on 8 July 1922 by Rollo Samuel Barrett of Brookside (7), President of the War Memorial Committee. It was constructed by Emley & Sons of Newcastle upon Tyne at a cost of £980. It originally commemorated the 47 Seaton Burn men who lost their lives in the First World War, with the names of World War II casualties added later.

As a poignant reminder of the casualties of both wars, and because of its design merits, the memorial was Grade 2-listed by English Heritage in 2013
