Birmingham Cannon Hill Park War Memorial Parker to Yates

This is the last part of the War Memorial in Cannon Hill park for the South African Boer war in the late Victorian era. This covers the names from Parker to Yates of the men of Birmingham who were killed during this time in South Africa. For other names see the two previous parts. This is one of the largest War Memorials that I have photographed and there are more to come from Solihull, Birmingham and the surrounding area including ones found inside churches.

An old postcard of the memorial titled - the soldiers memorial Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham. Not sure of the date of this one but would say around Edwardian times.

That completes the Cannon Hill War Memorial. there is another war memorial by the park which has no names but I will show in another blog along with the others that I have now photographed and recorded.

There are so many postcards of this war memorial and it was a favourite during the first part of the twentieth century to visit for a holiday.
