Newlyn War Memorial 
Compiled by George Pritchard

The Newlyn War Memorial was dedicated around 1920. The stonework was created by local stonemason Mr Snell of Newlyn whilst the Bronze sculpture is the work of L. S. Merrifield.

To My Mother - 1916

If I shall fall, grieve not that one so weak

And poor as I

Should Die.

Nay! though thy heart should break

Think only this: that when at dusk they speak

Of Sons and brothers of another one,

Then thou canst say - "I too had a son;

He died for Englands sake!"

S. Donald Cox.
