Newly restored Roll of Honour

Our copy of the WWI Roll of Honour has recently been newly restored and framed in the Long Eaton Council Chambers. The old copy of the roll was in a very bad state of repair and the frame was not of conservation grade or quality; this had over time led to the deterioration of the Artwork it contained. The new version of the roll has been produced on high quality conservation grade materials which includes acid-free under mounts and window mounts to separate the panels from the frames. The glazing is exceptional quality; TruVue Museum Glass which is light weight and 99% UV protected, and non-reflective.

The original (actual) WWI Roll of Honour has been conserved by external expert conservators and is currently stored in the Museum
Stores in line with Museum best practice. The original Roll of Hour is made of Vellum (a type of animal skin) and as such is a rare example of its kind and very delicate; too delicate to be on permanent display.
