To the Glorious Memory of the Men
of the Wath Main Colliery
Whose Names are Recorded Here.
Who Gave their Lives in the Great War,
Their Name Liveth for Evermore.

The Wath Main Colliery war memorial was unveiled on Saturday 12 November 1922 by Captain B. H. Pickering M.C., a former manager of the Colliery. It was positioned on the wall between the new pay offices and surrounded by a semi-circular iron fence with steps at the base. There are 125 names on this memorial. 

It would be nice to have a photograph of the memorial in its original position in the Colliery yard. I have tried to work out where it might have been on an old map and this is my best guess. The semi-circular lines just below my red marker might be the fence referred to above.
