In November 2005 Cleator Moor Town Council, Cumbria dedicated a War Memorial in the town centre, commemorating those who had lost their lives in the service of their country over the years. Although the dedication coincided with the 60th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War the memorial is not just for the fallen of the area during the World Wars but over all the for all those from the area who have lost their lives at other times as well. A new 'Roll of Honour' recording the names and details of those who have lost their lives is the next stage to remember The Fallen. The provisional list of names is to be on view at the Remembrance Sunday service in the town on 11 November 2007. An article about the project was in the local newspaper, 'The Whitehaven News', on Thursday 25 October 2007.
