About the memorial: The memorial commemorates the men of the church and parish who lost their lives in World War I. In 1867 Rev. William Mcguiness erected a tent and started preaching and holding services, In 1868 he built a tin church, in 1872 a church school was opened. By writing ten thousand letters each year for several years Rev Mcguiness raised £9000 to build a church which was completed in 1881. The church was destroyed by bombing in 1944. We have a service sheet from 1920 with names from the Plaque on it. We believe the plaque was salvaged from the church and kept in the boiler room in the new church which was built in 1957.We have found a family member to one of the names and his child's baptism in 1913 in our church register. We have applied for a WM Grant, have got a restorer from the conservation register. On the 10th August 2017 we were offered a 75% grant by W.MT. to help restore our plaque.
