Holy Trinity Church, Trinity Square, Nottingham, was dedicated in 1841 and demolished in 1956. Nottinghamshire Archives has a record of the memorials which were installed in memory of men from the church and parish (Nottinghamshire Archives ref PR14.611, Faculty dated 4 November 1920). A stained glass window was installed in the chancel to the memory of the men connected with the parish and church who died in the war, subject 'Hope'. A brass plaque was placed beneath the window with the inscription, 'The window and a tablet in the nave were erected to the Glory of God and in ever grateful memory of those who fell in the Great War 1914-1918. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends, St John XV 13'. An oak tablet with the names of those who had died was installed on the east wall of the nave, 'This tablet and window in the chancel were erected to the Glory of God and in ever loving memory of those connected with the Holy Trinity Church and parish who fell in the Great War 1914-1918.' A pamphlet, 'Holy Trinity Church: 100 years 1841-1941' has a photograph of the church and a photograph of the interior looking toward the altar and east window which shows a board or tablet on the right hand side of the chancel arch. (Nottinghamshire Archives ref PR 10,219). The memorials were unveiled on 12 September 1920. Nottingham Evening Post, Monday 13 September 1920: ‘Trinity Church Memorials. A memorable day was yesterday in the history of Holy Trinity Church, Nottingham, when Dr Martin Linton Smith DSO, unveiled and dedicated two windows in the chancel, one erected in memory of his father, the late Very Rev. James Alan Smith DD, Dean of St David’s and Vicar of the church from 1870 to 1884, and the other in honour of members of the congregation who fell in the war.’ (www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk), The board was transferred to Holy Trinity Church, Clifton, when Nottingham Holy Trinity closed; it is not known whether the stained glass window was saved before the church was demolished. The WW1 board and other memorials from Nottingham Holy Trinity are currently in the boiler room/cellar at Clifton Holy Trinity (January 2012).
