Holy Trinity Lichgate

The Heath Town Lichgate War Memorial in Wolverhampton is at the entrance to Holy Trinity Churchyard. It was built in honour of 225 heroes of the parish who fell in the Great War 1914 - 1919. Historic England have registered the lichgate as a Grade II listed building. If you would like to see it for yourself you can visit at any time.

This memorial is now in need of major repair to return it to it's former glory. Holy Trinity Church have won a grant to cover about half the cost, but the other half is still needed. The memorial was originally partly paid for by public subscription, and so we are once again inviting the people and friends of the parish to donate to its refurbishment in honour of the fallen of the Great War.

You can do so via the special Just Giving page.

On the Just Giving page you will find an image of the original Express & Star article from Monday 21st June 1920 entitle 'Beautiful Lichgate opened at Heath Town' which gives some background to the memorial.

Please donate what you can, and Gift Aid if possible, to help bring this memorial back to its former glory.

Thank you!
