Christ Church School, Ilkeston Road, Nottingham. The inscription on the board reads: '1914-1919. Christ Church Old Boys. For King and Country. Who nobly gave their lives in the Great War. Their names liveth for evermore. Unveiled and dedicated by Edwyn, Lord Bishop of Southwell. April 21st 1920. The names of all old scholars who served in any capacity in the Great War are inscribed in a book to be kept permanently in the school.' Notice published in the Nottingham Evening Post, Thursday, 15 April 1920: ‘Christ Church Day School Old Boys’ Society War Memorial. Unveiling by the Lord Bishop of Southwell, Wednesday, April 21st at 6.45, in the Day School, Denton-street, New Radford. Relatives may have tickets from Mr S Stubbins, 25 Johnson-road; EH Cox, 67 Glentworth-road. W Williams, Headmaster.’ (www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk). In November 1931 a Faculty was approved to remove the Old Boys War Memorial Board from the School into the parish church of Christ Church, New Radford, and 'fix the same on the wall of the south side of the church.' (Nottinghamshire Archives, ref PR 28/991.) Christ Church was closed in 1943 and the building demolished in 1951. The congregation amalgamated with All Souls Church, Radford, which itself was demolished in 1979 with a new church and community centre being rebuilt on the same site (1980). There is no record of the Christ Church School memorial being transferred to All Souls Church and the memorial has not yet been traced. However, a photograph of the board, which was probably taken about the time it was installed in the school in 1920, is held by Nottinghamshire Archives (ref PR 28/993).
