Nottingham North West (Basford & Bulwell) Virtual

The River Leen at Bulwell which flows through Basford on its way to the Trent. During the early Industrial Revolution the Leen supplied power to both communities.

This section commemorates Great War fatalities from the Nottingham districts of Basford and Bulwell whose names were not included on memorials erected during the conflict's aftermath. It is being compiled from from scrutiny of Nottingham Evening Post obituary entries, the CWGC Debt of Honour Register and other military sources, census data and Birth, Marriage and Death indexes.

  • Shipstone's Brewery which was  for decades Basford's most famous landmark. Brewing started on this site in 1852 and ended early in 1991. Although only the building remains, 'Shippos' appears here as an enduring  tribute to the men of New and Old Basford whose Great War sacrifice was not commemorated elsewhere.
