Patterdale Parish War Memorial

Towards the end of the First World War the inhabitants of Patterdale collected money in order to establish a permanent Monument as a Memorial to the Officers and Men who fell in the Great War.

William Hibbert Marshall, owner of Patterdale Hall, donated a piece of land (adjacent to the A592 opposite the Boat Cafe) to allow for the building of a permanent Monument in February 1921.

The memorial slab was hewn from a twenty ton piece of local slate and the eventual undressed slate stone still weighs in at around 5 tons. It was created by a Mr Pattinson of Glenridding and was carved on site. It was unveiled on 20th October 1921. . The names of those who died in World War Two were also added after that conflict.

As part of the 100th Anniversary Commemoration of the outbreak of World War One, members of the local community began a project to find out more about the men whose names are inscribed on the Memorial, on the Roll of Honour in the Village Hall, and also about life in and around Patterdale and Glenridding at the time.  The results are now available to view on the Ullswater Memorial website and also the Patterdale Today website.

Click on the images below to find out more information on each of the brave men listed on the memorial. If you have any information you can add please get in touch via the Ullswater Memorial website.  We have also included other men with local connections who died in the Great War but who were never listed on the memorial.
