About the memorial: Enter the building by way of the front entrance, pass through the security office and go up the first flight of stairs, and turn right, and the memorial is affixed to the wall. It is also plainly visible from the next flight of stairs. The memorial is illuminated by the room’s lighting. This is a brass plate, a roll of honour, which is currently highly polished hence the quality of the photograph! The measurement of the memorial is 700mm high x 380mm wide. It is very good condition, having originally been hung on the wall of the Orwell Street swimming pool, Orwell Street, Grimsby. This pool was originally a privately owned swimming pool, by the Fisher-lads Institute, and was situated on Orwell Street, close to the docks in Grimsby. The pool was given to the Grimsby Corporation on April 6, 1923, but was closed in the 1960’s. The roll of honour was found in someone’s shed and handed to the Town Hall only quite recently. The Trustees of the Grimsby Borough Council own the memorial, and it will be maintained by them, using funds allocated them by the North East Lincolnshire Council as requested by the Civics Manager. It is polished frequently by the Town hall cleaning staff! The Roll of Honour is in memory of the First World War only, and lists 36 men who had been members of the swimming clubs in Grimsby. The names are listed by initials and surnames, no ranks, decorations, regiment are mentioned at all, just the names of the swimming club that they belonged to at the time of their death.
