All Saints Church is unique within Newton-le-Willows and Earlestown, being the only church in the area with an original battlefield cross,
that of Captain Carlton Collingwood.
The cross and photographs form part of an Altar of Remembrance.
The chancel at Emmanuel Church at Wargrave was built in honoured memory of those connected with the parish church who gave their lives during the First World War.
The large wooden memorial at St John the Baptist Church, in the centre of Earlestown, commemorates those killed in both World Wars.
The St. Philip's, Newton Common, memorial can now be found at St. John the Baptist Church, Newton.

St Peter's on High Street has several memorials and rolls of honour.
The 1914-18 memorial consists of two brass plaques
listing the names of those who died in the Great War.
Next to them are similar plaques with the names of those
who died in the Second World War.
