UKNIWM Ref - 27142

Cenotaph, unveiled 30th May 1925 by General Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien and dedicated by The Right Reverend Edwyn Hoskyns, Bishop of Southwell; Designed by A.H. Richardson (of Worksop); made by Lidster & Brammer (of Worksop) Portland stone cenotaph on an Aberdeen granite base with two steps leading up to it. Wings extend from the cenotaph at each side. Names on bronze plaques attached to each side. Low chain link fence around the memorial. Whole stands on a traffic island in a road built for the memorial. Wreath in relief on the west side. There is a plan of the war memorial (c1920) in Nottinghamshire Archives (ref BP654) and also a Worksop ROH (ref DD1499/49). Nottinghamshire County Council restored the Grade II listed structure in 2010: the memorial was cleaned, damaged stonework replaced or repaired and the base of the memorial, which had patchwork paving replacements dating from the 1970s, was restored to stone. The ironwork bollards and lighting columns were also cleaned and a spiked chain, which was removed as part of the Second World War effort, replaced.
