The plaque states: 'This Nurses' home was erected by public subscription as a Nottingham and Notts memorial of the noble self-sacrifice of those sailors, soldiers and nurses of this city and county who gave their lives in The Great War. Their name liveth for evermore.' After World War One, the city and county agreed to adopt a scheme to extend the general hospital as a memorial to its dead, so a new nurses home was designed by Evans the hospital architect. It was opened by the Prince of Wales in 1923. It had provisions for 130 rooms. In 1927 another storey was added with 40 rooms. Another addition was built in 1941.
