The Morecambe and Heysham War Memorial stands on the Promenade at Morecambe, Lancashire.[1]

It has two inscriptions in black lettering, after which are listed the names of those remembered [1]

1939-1945/IN HONOURED MEMORY OF/THE MEN OF MORECAMBE AND HEYSHAM WHO DIED IN WORLD WAR II/(NAMES)

The memorial remembers 216 men who died in the First World War, 180 in the Second World War and 1 in the Korean War.[1]

The war memorial, made of bronze and granite, was completed in 1921 and designed by Thomas Hayton Mawson. A bronze lion sits atop a stepped base. On 20 January 1993 the monument was registered as a Grade II structure at British Listed Buildings.[2]
