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 cu- de- sac. The memorial, which consists of a wooden bench, stands alongside the Cenotaph, 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 the main structure on its base, rose garden beds, lawns and trees. The site is permanently illuminated, day and night The chair is made from Fijian mahogany, brought to the UK and given to the Master Mariners Association by Murdo Mcinnes, of Holton-le-Clay, Grimsby. The chair measures 2300mm long x 600mmwide x 1000mm tall and is a good condition. It was placed here in 1997, when the Master Mariners Association of Grimsby was ‘wound up’, and its committee decided to use its excess funds to pay for a chair as a memory of all merchant seaman and fisherman who had died for their country. Mr Mcinnes maintains a close eye on it, and sees to its upkeep. Although it does not need any preparation added to it, he does from time add a coat of varnish to show everyone that someone does own the memorial. The Council have given their permission for the chair to be placed next to the Cenotaph and therefore the chair will be their ultimate responsibility.
