One of the potential designs, featuring an eye-catching pointed plinth.

Nottingham City Council have released potential designs for the new memorial, built in time for Armistice Day this November.

The potential structure will be built in the Memorial Gardens on Victoria Embankment near West Bridgford.

The four designs, drawn up by three different artists will incorporate the names of over 14,000 fallen soldiers, airmen, sailors and civilians who died during the First World War.

It is the first war memorial in the country to incorporate the names of fatalities from a whole county, as opposed to a specific city, town or village.

Set to be officially launched on Armed Forces Day on June 30, the project is still in need of an extra £30,000 in funding from donors.

It is the first war memorial in the country to incorporate the names of fatalities from a whole county, as opposed to a specific city, town or village.

The leader of Nottingham City Council, Jon Collins, believes that it is important to bring together “a definitive list of the fallen”, and says that the memorial will finally answer the calls from the public to do this.

He said: “Many people have asked about a dedicated roll of honour memorial and this monument presents an opportunity to permanently mark the centenary in a befitting and respectful manner.

“Working with Nottinghamshire County Council and district councils on this project, we will commemorate the thousands of Nottingham city and Nottinghamshire people who died in the First World War.”

2018 is the centenary year of the end of the Great War, which ran from 1914 until 1918.

Another design, this time with a greener aesthetic.

Kay Cutts, Leader of the Nottinghamshire County Council, paid tribute to the servicemen and civilians saying: “From the young men who perished miles away from home and the medics who died trying to save them to the many who passed away from their injuries in subsequent years and those who were killed whilst working in the munitions factories back home, we owe them a huge debt of gratitude.”
