monument in need of restoration
For quite some time now the Formby monument in Warrington Cemetery has been in need of repairs and restoration. This is not the responsibility of the Society but obviously we are concerned that this remembrance of both father and son is kept in a safe and well-looked after state. Permission has been obtained from the Formby family so that the Society can appoint the necessary skilled trades to undertake the job. The cost of almost £2500 has been borne in full by the George Formby Society.

The monument fund is now closed and the monument is now fully restored.

Our sincere thanks you all those good people who have contributed, all your names are

listed below.

HOW TO VISIT THE FORMBY GRAVES

If you wish to view the monument, it is situated in Warrington Cemetary between The A50 and the A49.Access from the A49 is via Church Street and access from the A50 via Manchester Road. The Cemetery is actually on Manchester Road. To find the grave:- Go through Cemetery gates and turn left. Follow the path for about 100 yards and then fork right. Walk another 50 yards to GF memorial. It's right there in front of you, you will see it long before you reach it. The cemetery is the green area directly in the centre of this Google map.
