About the memorial: 2 plaques of names.: At the Easter Vestry Meeting in 1916, the vicar of St James, the Rev. Canon A. Markham, described his dream of building a new S.E. chapel as a memorial to commemorate those men of Grimsby who had given their lives during the war. Their full name and rank would be inscribed in some permanent form. In February 1917, the Church Council decided to invite Sir Charles Nicholson, Bart. architect to Lincoln Cathedral to contribute plans for such a scheme. By the middle of June, his plans for the chapel and vestries were submitted to the Council. By 1919, the plan had been approved, and the contractors, Wollridge and Simpson of Oxford were appointed contractors and work commenced. Lord Yarborough laid the foundation stone on St George’s Day, 1920, with full Masonic Orders. The chapel was dedicated by the Bishop of Lincoln on June 30th, 1921.But the roll of honour tablets were not in place at all, just paper sheets with the names on where the gun metal plaques would eventually be fixed. In June 1924, on the eve of the 8th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, the Memorial to the 10th Lincolns (Grimsby Chums) was dedicated, but a delay had occurred in the fixing of the tablets due to the financial situation. In June 1923, consideration had been given to painting the names on in wood, but the idea was dismissed. As they were so long overdue, in September 1924, Sir Alec Black offered to meet the necessary costs and they were quietly dedicated by the Bishop of Lincoln at Easter 1926. The vicar wrote in the church magazine of May 1926, “We had a great Easter…………The Bishop preached and celebrated insisting on doing both. During the service a small procession was made to the Chapel of Resurrection and at Col. Vignoles request, the Bishop dedicated the tablets just finished containing all the names of the Grimsby men who fell in the war. Very beautiful they look and we know how enduring the tablets are” The estimated cost of the whole scheme was £6,000, and by the end of 1918, £3,000 had been received in promises and gifts. By the end of 1920, £6,755 was at hand, but the costs had risen to £8, 242. In July 1928, the scheme finally cost £10, 312, with £1,282 still owing. This was finally cleared by a bequest by Lizzie Hosking, the daughter of Mr Anderson Bates. The chapel was intended to be the town’s memorial to the fallen, but it was decided to erect a Cenotaph at Nun’s Corner and a brass tablet put on the wall to link it to the chapel.
