The Duke of Kent, Prince Edward, has formally opened a memorial which names people from Nottinghamshire who died in the First World War.

The memorial, on Victoria Embankment after seven years’ of research went into finding the names of every person from the county who lost their lives during the conflict.

It displays all the names of the soldiers, sailors, airmen and civilians, incorporating a roll of honour for armed services fatalities from the whole of the county - the first memorial of its kind in Nottinghamshire.

The chosen memorial is an elevated, circular design with a five-metre high monument in the centre.

The Roll of Honour has been compiled by a team of volunteers, led by local historian David Nunn, who have scoured 677 village and town memorials across the city and county in chapels, churches, churchyards, parish halls, factories, schools, post offices, parish halls and sports clubs as well as archives and press cuttings.

However, prior to the creation of the Roll of Honour, no list of Nottinghamshire’s Great War dead had ever been compiled and many communities did not keep written records of the 1914 – 18 losses, so it’s not impossible that some names could have been missed

Among the names engraved on the new memorial are winners of Victoria Crosses, those who died in the Chilwell Shell Filling Disaster, people killed in the Nottingham Zeppelin raid and those who were shot at dawn by their own army.

The new memorial, next to the Victoria Embankment memorial, was paid for by dozens of contributions from Nottinghamshire residents and businesses, as well as the local councils.
