About the memorial: The roll of honour is a 70 plus page A4 booklet of town soldiers who died during the Great War and is based on names published in the Gainsborough News. The Roll was first compiled by Mr R H Johnson in the mid 1980s. Peter Bradshaw, Assistant headteacher at Middlefield and then Trent Valley Academy and some of his Secondary School pupils have also added around 100 names through their own research from asking their families, and researching the Common wealth War Graves website and Soldiers Died in the Great War and through battlefield visits. They have also compared all the other smaller war memorials in churches and schools across the town. ( A Second World War Roll has also been created). There is also now a printed physical memorial at Gainsborough Heritage Centre , incorporating a scene with a WW1 Tommy, using the Roll compiled by Peter Bradshaw. It was unveiled in 2018. A copy of this roll is held in All Saints Church and the Library.
