About the memorial: The memorial consists of a Book of Remembrance in a wooden cabinet situated in the foyer of the Civic Centre and is accessible to the general public during opening times. It is a black leather, hard bound, A3 size book containing goat skin pages each indicating a day of the year. Printed on each page and corresponding to the day of their sacrifice is an alphabetical record of local people from the Borough who died as a result of war or conflicts of the 20th Century. The information includes their rank, unit or ship, service number, decorations, year of sacrifice, where they were laid to rest or where a memorial to them is located and age. A page of the book is turned each day so that it corresponds with the actual day of the current year. Where no record exists of any casualties on any one day then a war poem is inserted and, where possible, corresponds to the month in question when it was written.
