About the memorial: This memorial is situated at Nun’s Corner, Grimsby, an elongated roundabout at the junction of the A46 (Weelsby Road) and the B1203 (Bargate), close to the junction with Eastwood Avenue. Parking may be had along Eastwood Avenue, which is a cul de sac. The memorial is set on a triangular site, at the junction of the roundabout and Eastwood Avenue. A pavement goes straight past the memorial on 2 sides of the site. The site consists of a memorial stone and tree and is illuminated, day and night, by lights fitted to illuminate the Cenotaph nearby. No names are listed and no war is named either, so the memorial may not be necessarily a war memorial but a memorial to all workers killed at war or not. The Acordis group make textiles in Grimsby, in particular the product Tencel. The memorial is a stone slab as above described and also a tree, which appears to be a sycamore tree, which is currently around 6000m high. It looks to be a young tree, which coupled with the good condition of the stone slab shows the memorial to be quite young. The letters on the slab are 30mm high and the slab measures 460mm square. At present it is not known who was responsible for the placing of the memorial on this site and when this was done. This information was forwarded to the Imperial War Musemn when known.
