Fleetwood, St Peter's memorial

At the top of Lord street, on the left hand side is St Peter's church. This is the first war memorial that was erected in Fleetwood. A memorial garden was built later that also had the names of the fallen on a somewhat grander memorial. Here are the photos and the inscriptions.

Designed by Decimus Burton and first opened in 1841.
St Peter's Anglican Church was enlarged in 1860 and again by Messr's Paley and Austin of Lancaster in 1883. The church was built with a spire but this was removed in about 1904 when it became unsafe.

In the church grounds stands the town's original war memorial commemorating the dead of the First World War.

The church continues to be used as a place of worship today

The memorial is to the right. The white building on the right is on Lord street
