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
Support the George Formby Society in this project
