St. John’s Congregational

From “A History of St. John’s Congregational Church” (courtesy Matthew Lovelock): at the close of the War, the Church decided to erect a War Memorial to those who had made the Supreme Sacrifice, and three exceedingly beautiful panels were placed in the pulpit with the inscription, “To the Memory of the Men of this Church who fell during the Great War, 1914 – 1919.”

Thomas Antrobus, Cecil Catherall, John Ellis, Samuel Ellis, Harry Fox, Edward John Griffiths, Ephraim Jackson, Andrew Lewis, G. H. Lewis, Stephen Price, William Roberts, Olive Rowlands, John Wilcock, Wilfred Wilcock, Harry Williamson.

The cost of the Memorial which was £135 was covered by subscriptions.”

After the Second World War, the names of the lost were added to the First World War list. 3 separate panels were added.
