Bushmills War Memorial

Bushmills War Memorial was unveiled by Lady Edith Macnaghten on 5 November 1921. The memorial cost £1,300 and was paid for by public subscription.

The sculpture was designed by Charles L. Hartwell of London. It is often mistakenly reported that his work is a representation of Robert Quigg VC. However, it is unheard of for a district war memorial to be modelled on a single individual and the features of the statue bear no resemblance to the local Victoria Cross winner.
