I have just found your fantastic website and through it discovered a whole chunk of family history I had no idea about. What a legacy my great great grandfather left! I will have to visit next time I am in the area.

Wishing you all the best for the upcoming Remembrance Sunday parade and service.

I have visited Leek on various occasions and walked past the monument without knowing what was inside. Thank you for providing such an interesting website which includes everything I would want to know. It is a lasting memorial to the fallen of two world wars accessible to everyone with access to a computer. Well done.

Superb website and well done, I have some pictures of corporal Billings and his family before he left Leek, they are of himself his Mum, Dad, brother and his sister in their garden on Buxton Road, His father was well known as a banker in Leek and his mother worked with Lady Wardle when she was a child, I think she may of worked on the 'Reading!' Tapestry

I agree with my old school friend Vernon Turner that being able to visit the Memorial would be an interesting exercise (in all senses!). I understand the Health and Safety aspects having worked in the tourism industry for a local authority. Is it a problem with safety barriers on the stairs? Usually a community-minded H&S officer can suggest solutions if it is thought the principle of opening to the public is important.

With a number of Nicholson connections locally - the Institute being only one - I suggest that a Nicholson Day with a talk or two in the Institute's excellent art gallery and a tour of places including the Memorial could be a winner.

Keep up the good work.

Regards
Alan Machin

An excellent website and fitting and moving tribute to the men and women who fought for king and country and gave up their lives so the rest of us can live in peace.
Well done Rob, John and Chris this really enhances the Nicholson War Memorial for prosperity.

Thank you and congratulations for this excellent and informative website. I was born in Leek in 1943 and lived there for 22 years. Often was the time that I wondered what was inside the memorial! Now I know through your gallery pictures. I have submitted a photograph of me with the Monument in the background taken around 1947. I believe I was standing in the area of the old cattle market now bus station. Have the Friends considered allowing visits by appointment to the interior of the memorial? I would certainly be willing to make a donation for such a privilege. Thank you again. Vernon Turner.

Admin reply: Hi Vernon,

Thanks for your comments (and picture).

We are looking into public access inside the memorial on certain days. We have the dreaded Health and Safety to overcome, but hopefully nothing insurmountable.

Regards,

Rob.

A fitting website to one (if not) the best war memorials in England. Well done.
