Nowadays we are used to seeing flowers placed at a crime scene or road accident, or the sight of a white “ghost bike” at the place where a cyclist has been killed. However, these local acts of remembrance are not a new phenomenon. War memorials, remembering those who fell in the two world wars, are a well-known and permanent feature in many British towns and villages, but few people are aware of the street shrines which were created whilst the ‘WW1 Great War’ still raged. Research has shown that several of these existed in streets such as Larcom Street, Date Street and Olney Road. Unfortunately I could not find an image of these memorials :(
