Ipswich War Memorial

Christchurch Park, Ipswich, Suffolk

The Ipswich war memorial was unveiled in March 1924 to commemorate those of the town who died in the First World War. Around the same time, the Suffolk Soldiers Memorial for the South Africa Conflict (the Boer War) was moved from the Cornhill, where it had stood since 1906, and placed close to the new War Memorial.
