Following the award of a 75% grant from the War Memorials Trust and the donation of the balance from the TR Register Coventry Group, the Friends of London Road Cemetery has beautifully restored the Triumph and Gloria Memorial at London Road Cemetery.

A re-dedication service is now planned for Saturday 17th November 2018 at 12 noon at the Memorial within London Road Cemetery. As well as the Coventry Standard Bearers Association being present it is hoped that as many descendants of the 66 men remembered on the Memorial will be able to attend. Also in attendance for the event will be the TR Register, Coventry Group and their cars as well as the Triumph Owners MCC Meriden Branch. After the service, refreshments will be served in the Anglican Chapel. All interested people are invited to attend and share this invitation.
