World War 1 & 2 - Detailed Information
Compiled and Copyright © Peter English 2009

The memorial stands in the Market Place, Bolsover. It is in the form of a stone cross on which is set a downward pointing black sword. The cross is set on a stone, hexagonal plinth on four of the faces of which are attached plaques bearing the names of the fallen. The memorial is surrounded by a low stone wall on top of which are iron railings. Flowers are planted around the memorial. There are 222 names listed, and the names of those who fell in the First World War are not separated from those who fell in the Second World War. No ranks are recorded. The memorial was designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield. As each name is researched they will be designated as WW1 or WW2 according to the conflict they were killed in. The names have been sorted into alphabetical order here for ease of reading and research.

Bishop of the 33rd Machine Gun Corps who writes. "I very greatly regret to have to tell you that your husband was killed in action yesterday. His officer Lieut. George Jagger was wounded earlier in the week and I took his place. I found your husband was in charge of a gun and doing excellent work. He was a very brave and capable man and one we can ill afford to lose. Will you accept the sympathy of every officer and men in this company in your loss. Your husband was killed instantly by a shell and was reverently buried by his comrades. The place will be marked by a cross. He was killed in the front line and no soldier will wish for a better death. You must always remember that he died whilst gallantly doing his duty. May God comfort you and help you to bear up. You husband was a man to be proud of."
