Long Description:
Memorial to the Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service at Bancroft Gardens, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire.

The dedication is to honour the lives of the four firefighters, Ashley Stephens, Darren Yates-Badley, John Averis and Ian Reid who tragically lost their lives in a fire at a vegetable packing plant in Atherstone-on-Stour on the 2 November 2007.

The Tribute also reflects the work of Firefighters from all across the United Kingdom.

The tribute itself is set in a small amphitheatre, close to the River Avon. In the gardens there is a solid granite seating area engraved with pictures and words to celebrate the life and work of the four firefighters who lost their lives at Atherstone-on-Stour. Four lime trees, representing each life lost, will shade this area.

A large sundial will incorporates Caithness stone rubbings of the work of firefighters.
Visitors to the site will be able to spend time making their own stone rubbings to take away as a memento of their visit.
