A new war memorial is going to be built in honour of those from Nottinghamshire who lost their lives during the First World War.
Four different designs have been proposed and residents are being urged to have their say on the designs – which we have included here – by logging on to Nottingham City Council’s website. The chosen monument will be unveiled in June.
The monument is being planned for the Memorial Gardens on Victoria Embankment in Nottingham and will be formally unveiled on Armed Forces Day on Saturday, June 30, 2018.
It is being launched in commemoration of when the war ended 100 years ago in 1918.
The names of more 14,000 servicemen, women and civilians from both the county and the city of Nottingham who died in WW1 will be included in a roll of honour, which will be incorporated into the monument.
You can check the Roll of Honour website here to see if a family members name is on there, and if not you have until May 31, 2018 to submit the missing name(s) via email.
Both Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council are commissioning the monument, but £30,000 needs to be raised for the project.
The councils are welcoming any donations for the roll of honour so they can meet their target so if you wish to donate you can do so by following this link: http://nosf.org.uk/roll-of-honour.html
