Dedication: 'Their name liveth for evermore. In grateful memory of the men of JB Lewis and Sons Ltd Nottingham and Ilkeston who fell in the Great War 1914-1918'. A memorial to 21 employees who died in the Second World War was inserted below the original memorial. The memorial was transferred to Courtauld's offices on Haydn Road, Sherwood, Nottingham, when the JB Lewis factory in Nottingham closed. JB Lewis also had a factory in Ilkeston and a framed photograph of the Nottingham memorial is displayed in the factory. Memorial recorded and photographed by Rachel Farrand and Peter Gillings.
