MAPPERLEY COLLIERY WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Detailed Information
Compiled & Copyright © Martin Edwards 2005
additional information Grant Shaw

This unusual tiled design shows the 66 names of those workers from the former Mapperley Collieries who died in the Great War. The memorial was formerly attached to the Silver Jubilee Club on Station Road, West Hallam which was once a Miners’ Welfare Club. The club was recently demolished (2005) and the Parish Council insisted on its preservation; it has now been re-erected in West Hallam village beside the main memorial.
