Located near the entrance to the gardens is a memorial commemorating the losses of two world wars.The War Memorial was dedicated on 11 June 1922 and unveiled by General Lord Horne, architect EW. Doyle Jones. The war memorial was damaged by enemy aircraft during the 1939 45 war and re erected afterwards. Here a service of remembrance is held each year on the Sunday nearest to 11 November.
