The War Memorial is situated to the South West of the main building, and commemorates the fallen of both WWI and WWII, and also includes a memorial to Eleanor Beckett and Jane Few, two of the Barnbow Lasses who lost their lives in the explosion at the Barnbow Shell Works during the First World War.


At the time of the explosion there was very little comment made in the Newspapers of the day. The Government were concerned that such news might be bad for the country's morale so what comment was made just referred to 'An Accident' After the war however the full extent of the disaster in which many lives were lost came to light.
