At the time of the construction of its air raid shelter, Portland Square was a large Victorian Square - now the land is occupied by the University of Plymouth. In 1939, underground air raid shelters in the shape of short concrete tunnels were constructed just below ground level in the SW, NW and NE corners of the Square with an ARP hut in the SE corner.

On the night of 22/23 April 1941 the NE section received a direct hit during a bombing raid and between 72 and 76 people died - the exact number will never be known. Too many Plymothians died in air raid shelters that were poorly constructed or inadequate for the purpose.

The following people, remembered on this page, were among those killed by the direct hit on the Portland Square NE Air Raid Shelter:

Lilian Chapman; DorothyChowne; Claude Chubb; Florence Chubb; Joseph Coombes; Marjorie Cornelius; William Cornelius; Betty Cundy; William Cundy; Winifred Cundy; Albert Davies; Dennis Davies; Florence Davies; Iris Davies; Kenneth Davies; Patricia Davies; Winifred Davies; Frederick Denning; William Denning.
