On Sunday 19th June 1921, according to the Nottingham Evening Post a day later, ‘the church of St Ann’s, Nottingham, was filled to its utmost capacity... when a crowded congregation gathered to acknowledge the debt due to the 300 (sic) men of the parish who gave their lives in the defence of their country during the war, and to take part in the ceremony (led by municipal leaders and clergy) of unveiling a handsome memorial of oak panelling which has been erected round the chancel.’ This report, along with the recently unearthed photograph appearing here, confirms that St Ann’s officially recorded total of Great War fatalities was 301 rather than 387 cited on the 1921 St Mary’s, Lace Market plaque. The remainder it seems were allocated to a separate memorial, standing at the junction of Woodthorpe Drive and Plains Road, Mapperley, for the parish of St Jude (since 1877 a daughter church of St Ann).

  • Designed by local architect Robert Clarke, the church of St Ann opened in 1864, with a seating capacity of 254, as a daughter church to St Mary the Virgin Nottingham. St Ann became an independent parish in 1865 and a school, which became popular and well attended, was soon added to the site. By the early 1950s, plans to re-develop the St Ann’s area were in preparation and the final service was held at St Ann’s on Easter Sunday 1971. ‘Immediately afterwards,’ according to the Southwell & Nottingham Church History Project, ‘a few male members of the congregation set about dismantling and removing the organ, a task they completed late on Easter Monday evening. Unfortunately we have no information as to where, or whether, the organ was installed elsewhere. Demolition commenced at 8 a.m. the next day. Several items removed from St. Ann’s now reside in other local churches, and the east window is now in the USA; sadly other items were left to the fate of the demolishers’ hammers or the scrap yard.’ Attempts to trace the St Ann’s Parish and Congregation Great War memorial having proved fruitless, it must be reluctantly concluded that the plaque was probably amongst ‘other items’ discarded or destroyed during demolition.
