About the memorial: in Old Hall Street are 8 of original 12 trees planted plus a plaque created 2018 inside the adult education building foyer. On the 10th of November 1920 a log book entry reads: "Today the Mayor and Mayoress of the Borough, together with the deputy mayor and other officials conducted the ceremony of the planting in connection with the school. Twelve trees were planted by scholars in Old Hall Street in memory of past scholars who had given their lives for their king and country during the great European War." The eight trees that stand at Old Hall Street are believed to be what remains of those planted in 1920. The Mayor of Wolverhampton, Councillor Phil Page unveiled the artwork at an event on Tuesday 13th November 2018 in commemoration of the 100 Year Centenary.
