Great Malvern library and war memorial
Great Malvern library was opened in 1906. The library was built on a water meadow just below Graham Road given to the town by Henry Foley Lambert Grey.
Andrew Carnegie, the philanthropist, donated £5,000 and CW Dyson Perrin £3,000.
The Malvern war memorial was erected in the front of the library in 1923 and the frontage along Graham Road was given an uplift in 2009 when the hedge was replaced by railings and steps built up from the memorial to a new entrance in Graham Road. Disabled parking spaces were also provided at the north entrance
The war memorial was designed by the sculptor Richard Reginald Goulden (1877 - 1932), who designed many memorials after the Great War
The figure is of a winged youth holding up a flaming torch
The base of the memorial, which is now difficult to read, is inscribed,
WHO NOBLY SERVED
1914 - 1919
The roll of honour listing the men of Malvern who fell in the world wars can be found in the library.
