About the memorial: The memorial commemorates the lives of 20 men who died in WW1 and who would have had some connection with the Vann Street Methodist Church in the Loughborough Road area of Leicester where the memorial was originally sited. The Methodist Church became the Belgrave Union Church who took the memorial with them when they went on to relocate to their current Elmdale Street site. The Vann Street church was then closed and subsequently demolished to make way for housing. The memorial remained at the Belgrave Union Church until it was noticed that it had been moved from its usual place of prominence after which it was taken into the care of the Leicester At Risk War Memorial project.
