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
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.
