This first world war memorial is quite unusual as its on the wall of a private house, rather than the more usual stand-alone monument you might expect, another thing that made it stand out was a new addition at the base of the inscription.
For reasons unknown Sgt Maurice Mallinson had been left off the original memorial and thanks to the Normanby History Group his name was added on Saturday 17th November 2007
Normanby House was built around 1716 for Reverend William Consett and Elizabeth Pennyman
It later became known as Manor House and is currently a doctors surgery
This was the eastern part of the estate of Sir William Pennyman, 4th Baronet which was split between his daughters and the brothers they married.

Members of the public are also invited to join the party at the foot of the bridge on Monday – the Transporter’s 100th birthday – when, from 1.30pm, there will be special performances, official speeches and even a Transporter Bridge cake!
The bridge’s Visitor Centre will also host a heritage exhibition, featuring Transporter artefacts, memories, photographs and video clips collated by the centenary reminiscence project.
