  1. My colleagues and I have created a new website with an interactive map of memorial sites in Nottingham alongside an assortment of articles about the way in which we remember the World Wars. Please check it out at https://aspaceformemory.wordpress.com/ We welcome any and all feedback and if you have any of your own responses you'd like to share on the site please comment, or don't hesitate to contact us on aspaceformemory@gmail.com
  2. Two years ago I chose one name at random from a Nottingham War Memorial to see what I could discover about the life behind the name. William Eric Woodward lived on Gawthorne Street New Basford with his sister and mother. His mother was, unusually for this time, a painter and decorator having taken on this role in 1908 following the death of her husband. At the out break of war in 1914 Eric, as he was known, was just 15 and a scout at Blackwoods in Sherwood. Whilst I was aware of his name on the church memorial (St Andrew's with Castle Gate church in Nottingham) I subsequently discovered that he was employed by John Players in 1916 and is also named on a memorial which is now within their horizon factory. Eric died in 1919 in Leicester Military hospital he was just 20 years old. In his memory his Scout Master presented his mother with a album of photographs of Eric in his scouting years these include photographs of Eric with Scouting founder Baden Powell. A memorial gateway to all Scouts who died in WW1 was built by the Scouts at Blackwoods and remains there to this day. I have suggested that one of Nottingham's new trams is named after him, not as an individual but one name taken at random representing all Nottingham's unsung heroes, all those on our Nottingham War memorials who made the ultimate sacrifice in WW1.
