The restoration of Bootle War Memorial was the largest memorial project in the country to be funded by the War Memorials Trust in 2016-17. The project has since been selected by Historic England as an exemplary project of 'good practice'. Upon the completion of the works the War Memorials Trust invited Ian Bright to speak about the project to the public, other conservators and interested organisations at a "Site Tour Day". which was then held on 12th April 2017.

We would like to thank Sefton Council, The War Memorials Trust, Historic England and all those involved for the opportunity and such an enjoyable day.


The official unveiling and re-dedication of the beautifully restored Bootle War Memorial was held on the 3rd September 2016. 

The prestigious event was attended by a number of dignitaries and marks the official completion of the restoration by Ian Bright Architects.
