The Great War memorial

New designs for a memorial to honour the 14,000 service men, women and civilians from Nottinghamshire and Nottingham and who lost their lives in the First World War have been unveiled.

The monument will be situated in the Memorial Gardens on Nottingham's Victoria Embankment, close to the City of Nottingham War Memorial. It is due to be formally launched on Armed Forces Day on Saturday 30 June 2018.

The monument will be the first to incorporate a roll of honour for armed services fatalities for the whole of the county together, rather than a city, town, village or workplace.

Four designs by three different artists are being considered and people can see the plans and have their say views on all the proposals.

Have your say about the designs for the war memorial.

The memorial will provide a befitting and lasting commemoration, listing the names of all those people from the County and the City who lost their lives fighting throughout the First World War.

Check the Roll of Honour website to see whether the name(s) of your family members are there. If not, you will need to submit your name(s) by 31 May 2018 by emailing

The memorial is being commissioned by Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council, working with the seven district and borough councils, Gedling, Rushcliffe, Newark and Sherwood, Bassetlaw, Ashfield, Broxtowe and Mansfield.

£50,000 needs to be raised for the project - people can donate through the Nottingham Open Spaces Forum.
