About the memorial: Tabernacle’s congregation increased dramatically after the 1905 religious revival and the chapel building was expanded with a Sunday School added in 1910. The large number of men from Tabernacle’s congregation who served and fell during the First World War is testified by 3 brass plaques preserved inside the chapel. There are 2 no. brass memorial plaques to men who served, and 1 no. smaller plaque to men who were killed during the First World War. 'On Saturday, January 27th, 1923, a magnificent Memorial Organ was opened and dedicated 'to the Glory of God and in affectionate memory of those of this Church and Congregation who gave their lives for home and country in the Great War.' It was opened by Mrs. B. Francis, supported by Mr R. Hall. In the evening an organ recital was given by H. Ravenscroft Richards and on Sunday and Monday special preaching services were held. Memorial tablets bear the names of the twelve men who gave their lives and the fifty-three others who served and were privileged to return.'
