Further Information
This memorial was dedicated on Workers Memorial Day 2007 by Portsmouth Trade Union Council members and local MPs. It commemorates the 250 people a year who die from work related illnesses in the UK. A Memorial Garden to those who died from asbestos related diseases such as mesothelioma was also opened. The siting of the memorial in Portsmouth is particularly poignant as thousands of workers in Portsmouth Dockyard were exposed to asbestos dust without being informed of the dangers.
