GRIMSBY POST OFFICE WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and Copyright ©John Readman & Martin Edwards 2005

The Grimsby Post office memorial is to be found in Victoria Street, Grimsby, inside the main post office. The main Post Office in Grimsby is situated at 67 to 71, Victoria Street, close to the junction with George Street, opposite the Bus Station. There is a memorial to the men who fought in the First World War inside this building which is near to counters. It’s in a good condition and the words are clearly inscribed and polished as if it was new, instead of being well over 80 years old having been placed there in 1921. It is evidently polished every day and is maintained by the Post Office.
