 •	Little of the old Radford remains. Its terraced rows, heaving pubs and thriving shops vanished during later twentieth century demolition and redevelpoment. Raleigh, Players and numerous small mills, workshops and factories are distant memories. However, although now a café, the White Horse, on the corner of Faraday and Ilkeston Roads, stands as a defiant reminder of the past. This was the setting for Saturday Night and Sunday Morning's boozing contest after which anarchic, nihilistic, womanising anti-hero Arthur Seaton rolled drunkenly down the back stairs. Alan Sillitoe's novel and Karel Reisz’s 1960 film uncompromisingly depicted a tough neighbourhood at work and play, projecting Radford on to the cultural radar. The late Albert Finney’s brilliant portrayal implanted Seaton, for all his loutish selfishness, permanently in the affection of many Nottinghamians. David Nunn

At least 267 Radford Great War fatalities were not commemorated locally during the conflict's aftermath. This section of the Roll of Honour has been compiled from Nottingham Evening Post obituary entries, the CWGC Debt of Honour Register and other military sources, census data and Birth, Marriage and Death indexes.
