Women workers stack live shells destined for the trenches at the huge munitions factory at Chilwell in Nottinghamshire in 1917.

A few months later, on 1 July, 1918, 250 workers were killed when eight tons of these TNT explosive at the factory blew up.

Only 32 bodies could be positively identified.
