This status change comes as part of Historic England’s national assessment of war memorials.
Historic England recognised the heritage and history of Rawtenstall Cenotaph and duly upgraded its listed status. Historic England stated that is was awarded Grade II* listed status due to its architectural interest, its sculptural interest and the quality of the craftsmanship.
