THE memorial to Port Sunlight factory workers who gave their lives during the First World War features in a national heritage exhibition in London.

The Grade-II listed war memorial features in We Will Remember Them: London's Great War Memorials at the Wellington Arch in London.

The memorial pays tribute to soldiers who worked for Lever Brothers’ soap factory.

Also included are rarely-seen designs, statuettes and photographs of England’s most famous Great War memorials, including the Cenotaph.

The exhibition was launched by Helen Grant MP, Minister for the First World War Centenary and runs until November 30. She said: “Memorials link the tragic impact of world wars with local communities across the land.

During the First World War all parts of the country sent men off to fight and women off to work.

“Virtually all suffered losses. It’s time to consider how we can keep these memorials prominent in the public eye.”

The exhibition begins with the story of the six First World War memorials in London which are cared for by English Heritage.

These include some of the finest ever created: the Cenotaph on Whitehall, the memorial to Edith Cavell, and the Royal Artillery Memorial at Hyde Park Corner – a few steps from the exhibition itself at the Wellington Arch.
