The War Memorial in St. Peter's Church, Redcar (Cleveland)
The War Memorial in St. Peter's Church, Redcar (Cleveland)
Photo by Edward Nicholl

The First World War Memorial for Redcar is inside the Church of St. Peter's, and is a Roll of Honour tablet as shown above. The names of the men recorded on this memorial are to be found in the Middlesbrough Archives.
(Curiously, the War memorial in Redcar's town centre, although inscribed as being for the dead of both World Wars, only carries the names of the dead from the Second World War).

The names on the panels are;-
