War memorial unveiled in 1902 in Serlby Park, moved to its current location, outside the Carlton TA Centre, in 2002.

Reasons for Designation

The Boer War memorial, originally at Serlby Hall but moved in 2002 to Carlton TA Centre, Cavendish Drive, Carlton, is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons: * Historic interest: as an early example of a war memorial, one of relatively few which remembers men lost in the South African War; * Artistic quality: as a well-executed carved urn.


This Boer War memorial was unveiled in 1902 at Serlby Hall, the ancestral seat of the Viscounts Galway. The family sold the Hall in the later C20 and the memorial was moved in 2002 to Carlton TA Centre.


The memorial comprises a sandstone urn, carved in relief with goats’ heads and grapes, standing atop a square-sectioned pedestal on a splayed base. The inscription on pedestal reads THIS MONUMENT ERECTED BY VERE VISCOUNTESS GALWAY IN HONOUR AND LOVING MEMORY OF THOSE OF THE SHERWOOD RANGERS 10TH COMPANY 3RD BATALLION IMPERIAL YEOMANRY WHO FELL IN SOUTH AFRICA 1900-1902 (15 names).
