This war memorial is unusual in that it commemorates civilians killed in air attacks between 1939 and 1945. It is known as the Citizens' War Memorial and is close to the chapel at the Northern Cemetery. It dates from 1951. During World War Two Hull was one of the three most bomb damaged areas in the country. It lost 5,300 houses as well as churches, public buildings, factories and shops.
