Exhibition - Rothschilds and the First World War

8: The New Court War Memorial

Like many other families, communities and companies, with a heavy heart, N M Rothschild and Sons wished to record the sacrifice made by members of the staff of New Court and the Royal Mint Refinery who fell in the 'war to end all wars'. The names on the roll of honour for 1914-1918 would later be joined by the names of those killed in the Second World War.

The first New Court war memorial was made of wood. When New Court was rebuilt in the early 1960s, a new war memorial was commissioned, with a simple but elegant design of gold lettering carved into white marble.

The two war memorials are preserved in the Archive.
