Wednesfield War memorial update

Wednesfield’s stolen war memorial will soon be replaced with the names of missing war dead.

Phil Bateman has posted an update on the future of the Wednesfield War Memorial after the metal plaque was recently stolen from the Cenotaph in Wednesfield.

Mr Bateman and Wolverhampton North East MP Emma Reynolds have been appealing for families to contact them if they know of loved ones who were missed off the original memorial.

Several families have come forward during and their loved ones will now be added to the new memorial alongside their fallen comrades.

Sergeant Causer of Wednesfield Police this week confirmed that the Police had given a substantial sum towards the replacement of the vandalised memorial. The money was raised as a payment to the Police following an episode of the BBC’s ‘Doctor’s’ programme being filmed at the station.

The new plaque will be made of a material that has no scrap value in an attempt to deter metal thieves.
