Lenton war memorial column © Lenton P.C.C, 2008This war memorial is made from limestone in the form of a square fluted column on a large plinth with bronze plaques. There is a large bronze cross on top. It is surrounded by iron railings and shrubbery.

It is located in Albert Ball Memorial Gardens in Church Street, Lenton, Nottinghamshire.

War Memorials Trust gave a grant of £1000 to this memorial. The main works that were undertaken were, steam cleaning of masonry and bronze plaques; removing copper stains on stone; re-pointing defective joints with lime mortar; replacing corroding railings and repainting all railings; cutting back the shrubbery and improving the paving. Some of the works were carried out by local volunteers and air cadets.

It was erected in 1919 and is next to a group of almshouses dedicate to Captain Albert Ball V.C. The war memorial is dedicated to 288 men who fell in World War I.Lenton war memorial column © Lenton P.C.C, 2009
