Across the road from Newtonhurst is the Victoria Street War Memorial on the corner with Cartwright Street surrounded by wrought iron railings. The insciption on the plinth reads:

WHO ANSWERED THEIR

ALDERMAN TURNER MARCH 13TH 1920.

The bronze statue of a soldier on the top is a replica, added in 2005, to replace the often vandalised original.
Newton has another War Memorial on Bennett Street.
