Lindisfarne War Memorial

Lindisfarne War Memorial, Ruabon

Lindisfarne War Memorial commemorates those former students of the college who died in World War I and World War II.

Lindisfarne College was a private boarding school which was founded in 1891 in Westcliff on Sea in Essex, England. In 1940 the college moved from Westcliff to nearby Creeksea Place but during World War II the building was requisitioned by the military and the school transferred to Newburgh Priory at Coxwold in Yorkshire, England.
In 1950 the school made its final move to Wynnstay in Ruabon, which was the former ancestral home of the Williams-Wynn family. The college closed owing to bankruptcy in 1994.

The war memorial originally stood in the churchyard of Westcliff on Sea parish church but was later moved to Wynnstay. Once the college closed the memorial was moved to the churchyard of St. Marys Parish Church in Ruabon.
