Embankment and Memorial Gardens

Recommended Posts

Thanks for that RR, I still visit the gardens and always enjoy my walks around there,brings back loads of memories of when I was a kid living round the corner and visiting the place with my grandparents

Brilliant and yes 100 years..like the RAF as well.

Did the damage to the enbankment get repaired?. I visit Waverley st.Cemetery when in Nottm.

I intend to visit Ruddington and see the Rourkes Drift graves..costs nothing to give 5 minutes to rememember them.

Speaking of Rourkes Drift Ian, I've mentioned before I live about two miles away from Gonville-Bromheads ancestral home in Thurlby, the family church of St Germains has a stained glass window dedicated to the Rourkes Drift Lt,He also went to school in Newark on Trent

I'll see what pictures I have Ian,in the meantime here's a picture I took a few years ago just inside the gate to Cossall churchyard, dedicated to John Shaw and Richard Waplington of the Life Guards who fell at Waterloo and Thomas Wheatley of the Light Dragoon Guards who is buried at Cossall,you might have to enlarge the photo to read the inscriptions

Judging by some of the comments posted here the present War Memorial is lacking in maintenance so build another one in the same grounds?

Incidentaly does anyone know when the balustrade & steps on the river bank were removed and what happened to them?
