About the memorial: Formerly Nottingham General Hospital, now private residence. Memorial nurses home, dedicatory bronze plaque mounted on south side retaining wall. In addition, the homes above, now Royal Standard House were also the memorial (the dedicatory plaques marking that fact). Large lettering across the top of the building's south elevation reads: '1914 IN REMEMBRANCE 1918' and above this there is a three dimensional bronze flag sculpture. On the building's north elevation, above the main entrance door, is a further dedicatory plaque relating to these memorial nurses' homes. When the NHS vacated this part of the former Nottingham General Hospital site these former nurses' homes (by that time largely being used as office space) were sold in the 1990s and converted into residential apartments.
