Yorkshire Regiment War Graves, -
Warrington was the depot for the South Lancashire Regiment for both wars and was home to the Lord Derby War Hospital and White Cross Auxilliary Hospital during the First World War. During the Second World War, a shore establishment of the Fleet Air Arm was stationed there.
Warrington Cemetery contains 197 First World War burials, 74 of them in a war graves plot with a Cross of Sacrifice. The 102 Second World War burials are scattered. A Polish airman is also buried in the cemetery.
One burial in the cemetery is that of a soldier of the Yorkshire Regiment.
We are very grateful to Mike Berrell for the photographs of the headstone and the Warrington Cemetery entrance.
