Mansfield - Queen Elizabeth Boys' Grammar

located in the cricket pavilion in the grounds of Queen Elizabeth School, Chesterfield Road, Mansfield.

UKNIWM Ref - 27020

Location: Queen Elizabeth School, Chesterfield Road, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. The pavilion was built as a memorial to Old Elizabethans who fell in the Great War. The honorary architects were Messrs Cook, Howard and Lane. The pavilion was opened on 19 September 1928 by Field Marshall the Rt. Hon. Viscount Allenby GCB GCMG and dedicated by the Rev. Canon Spencer H Elliott MA. A copy of the order of service, which includes the names of 31 scholars who died and the dates they attended the school, is held in Nottinghamshire Archives (ref. S/BX117/157). The original memorial plaque in the pavilion, which was unveiled in 1928, was replaced by the one pictured which commemorates Old Elizabethans who died in both the First and Second World Wars and the Korean War. It also includes three names from the Great War which were probably not on the original plaque: H Bottom, RD North and PB Richardson.
