Upper plinth: ‘Erected by voluntary subscription in memory of all those in West Bridgford who gave their lives in the Second World War 1939-1945 (names).’ The memorial was unveiled by Rev HT Hayman, chaplain of the Robin Hoods, on 5 June 1921. Nottingham Evening Post, Monday 6 June 1921: ‘Heroes remembered in Nottm. and District. West Bridgford. Brilliant sunshine reigned yesterday afternoon during the unveiling, by the Rev HT Hayman, chaplain of the Robin Hoods, of West Bridgford’s war memorial, which stands at the corner of Musters-road, near the Council offices. The memorial is a column of Portland stone, with enriched carved capital, surmounted with tabernacle work in the early English style, and stands on an octagonal base 6ft. wide, around which is carved:- ‘Pro Patria. The Victor heroes reset in many lands, but here the symbol of their glory stands.’ There are eight cast bronze plates, containing the inscription: Erected by voluntary subscriptions in memory of those who fell in the Great War, 1914-1919. ‘Remember with thanksgiving the true and faithful men who in these years of war went forth from this parish, for God and right, the names of those who returned not again are here inscribed, to be honoured for evermore.’ At the base is a circular wall, 18ft. in diameter, enclosing a flower bed. Prior to the unveiling Mr Hayman delivered a stirring address, in which he strongly deprecated the present industrial unrest. He had known West Bridgford for over 40 years and remembered it as a little village. To him it was remarkable to think that the parish – now quite a town – contributed upwards of 1,000 men to the war, 186 of them, alas! having passed over the border to return no more.’ (www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk). The memorial is Grade II listed (241801).
