The memorial, which was erected shortly after the war, is Grade ll listed. It is at the junction of Woodthorpe Drive/Mapperley Plains and is just inside the boundary of Gedling Borough Council. Nottingham Evening Post, 17 December 1920: ‘Mapperley War Memorial. Stone Monument to be Erected. At a meeting of the residents of Mapperley held last evening in St Jude’s Parish Room, under the presidency of Mr S Pearson, the scheme or the erection of a war memorial to the fallen was advanced another stage. It was decided it should take the form of a stone monument, and a small sub-committee was appointed with instructions to negotiate for the acquisition of a site at the corner of Scout-lane. This scheme is entirely separate from that proposed in connection with St Jude’s Church, which provides for the completion of the south aisle and the erection of a memorial tablet.’ (www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk). The British Listed Buildings website describes the memorial as follows: 'War memorial with enclosing wall and railing. c1918, restored c1990. Portland stone. Tapered round shaft with 4 tall buttresses, topped with a crocketed pinnacle. Octagonal pedestal with bronze plaques. The memorial is set in Portland stone paving. Octagonal boundary wall, rock-faced Bulwell stone with rounded coping, 2 cast-iron gates, and 4 lengths of cast-iron railing.' The memorial was paid for by public subscription. The dedication reads, 'Erected by voluntary subscription 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.'
