The beautiful Christ Church Memorial stands in front of Christ Church in Church Road, Coseley. Its form is Christ on the Cross, symbolic of suffering and sacrifice. 3 bronze plaques at the base of the memorial contain 124 names, and 20 of these relate to Tipton men commemorated on this site. These men were either born or were resident in Tipton, most often Princes End.
Coseley borders Princes End, and this is reflected by 10 of the 20 'Tipton' men commemorated on this memorial also being commemorated on the St. John's memorial in Upper Church Lane, Princes End. 3 of the 'Christ Church 20' are also commemorated on the Tipton Library memorial, and TR Homer and HN Parsons are both commemorated on 3 memorials.
The Christ Church graveyard has just a single burial from the 20 'Tipton' men commemorated here, that is George Hughes. However 4 'Tipton' men are buried in the Christ Church graveyard who are not commemorated here, they are Arthur Ball, William Morris, John Vincent and Richard WIlliams. Clicking on any of the names will take you to their web page.
At the bottom of this page there are photographs of the 3 plaques showing the names of the men commemorated.
Clicking anywhere on a row will take you to the detail page for that man.
