Trafford World War I Memorial

100 Cities / 100 Memorials

100c 100m wwi centennial plaque The World War I Memorial in Trafford was first dedicated on November 11, 1919. Following the wars that took place in Iraq and Afghanistan, a group of Trafford residents came together to plan for the installation of a new memorial to honor all those from Trafford who served in the Global War on Terror. While planning for this new memorial, the Trafford Veterans Memorial Renovation committee recognized the need to restore the aged World War I Memorial and address the overall disrepair of the park that occurred over time from the effects of age and weather.  Work began in the park on November 15, 2011 and the project was completed and dedicated on Memorial Day, May 26, 2014. The group was honored to add the name of Nicola Elmo to the roster of veterans listed on this memorial. He was a Trafford resident who was killed in action during the Great War and his name was missing from the memorial roster for 95 years. The overall beauty of the park, and the luster of the restored World War I Memorial, provides a place of solemn reflection and inspiration to the residents of Trafford. It is an honor to recognize these former citizens of Trafford who answered the call so that liberty justice and equity might not perish. For a complete list of names on the bronze plaque and some photos of these men, please visit TraffordHistory.org
