Dudley Grammar School Memorial

The Dudley Grammar School memorial is located in St. James’s Road, Dudley, outside what is now Castle High School. The memorial is a stone obelisk, with bronze plaques recording the names of those old-boys killed in the Great War. As you would expect from a Grammar School, the sequence is precisely alpahabtic.

There are 9 Tipton names on the memorial, which records 61 names in total. Interestingly the 9 consist of 3 officers, 4 NCOs, and 2 Privates.
