War Memorials

Ruabon (Lindisfarne College)
Rhiwabon (Coleg Lindisfarne)

The Lindisfarne College 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, 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 formerly the ancestral home of the Williams-Wynn family. The college finally 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. A few years after the college closed, the memorial was re-sited to the churchyard of St. Mary's Parish Church in Ruabon. When the Old Lindisfarnians Association was wound-up, their remaining funds were transferred to Ruabon Parish Church for the maintenance of the memorial.

As those commemorated on the memorial are unlikely to have any connection to Ruabon, only their names are listed.
