Our Resident Memorials
Sometimes it is not possible for the memorials we rescue or restore to be placed back into the buildings where they were originally located. This can be for a number reasons such as the building is to be demolished, there is a risk of theft or vandalism or there is (or will be) a change of use/ownership of the premises.
In these cases, we are able to take the memorial concerned into our custody in the Chancel of All Saints' Church where we have a number of bespoke display stands and equipment. Wherever possible, each memorial is accompanied by details of the building where it was originally located together with whatever information we have been able to gather concerning the men listed on the memorial.
It is these memorials which are available to view on our open days.
Leicester Boy Scouts Association
An interesting memorial dedicated to the Scoutmasters, Patrol Leaders, Seconds and Scouts of the Leicester [Boy Scouts] Association who lost their lives in WW1.
Standard Engineering Roll of Honour
A sadly lost Roll of Honour from the Standard Engineering factory in Evington Valley Road, Leicester. We are appealing for more information on this memorial.
