Jonathan Crosby, 45, from Dickleburgh, was working on a power cable in Sawmills Road, Diss, when the accident happened last November.

The father of four, who was working for EDF Energy, was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment but died later.

After the tragedy, Mr Crosby's widow Carolyn described him as a “one-off, a wonderful husband and father”.

The memorial website is being launched tomorrow.

It has a tribute guestbook for people to sign and a gallery of photos.

The site also features slideshows of the memorial garden built by his EDF Energy colleagues

and a memorial football match last May.

Mr Crosby went to school in Diss and had worked for EDF for more than 20 years.

Mrs Crosby said the website was a “lovely tribute to a loved and respected man”.

An inquest into Mr Crosby's death has been opened and adjourned.
