The First World War Memorials of Lincolnshire
This book provides a comprehensive gazetteer of the 295 external WW1 memorials in the historic county of Lincolnshire (excludes any located within buildings). For each War Memorial the author gives the location and description of the memorial along with its own particular story of how it was designed, funded, erected and unveiled. Each is illustrated, many with historic photographs of the dedication and unveiling. This volume also includes a register of all the names that appear on the memorials including those of the Second World War and later conflicts where these have been added to a Great War memorial.

He has campaigned for the restoration of several Lincolnshire War memorials and he designed the memorial to the Lincolnshire Regiment at Sobraon Barracks, Lincoln, and also one near Loos, France, commemorating the battle for the Hohenzollern Redoubt in which regiments from the East Midlands played a major role. Her has studied Lincolnshire’s War Memorials for over three decades and brings his research and expertise together in this publication.
