Memorial to Fallen Heroes. (Extract).

'Their Name Liveth For Ever.'

A memorial was dedicated in the Market Place Bolsover to the men who fell in the great world conflict. Dedicated to the 159 men of the Parish who died in the conflict. The memorial is of Portland stone with a bronze sword and is a replica of those erected in the British cemeteries in France designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield R.A. and is a tribute to the heroism and sacrifice of those whose memory is intended to perpetuate.

The cost of the memorial is £800, only £60 of which is left to be raised.

A united memorial service was held in the Old Parish Church and was attended by ex servicemen, members and officials of the Urban Council and the family and friends of the fallen.
