About the memorial: The West Window - was inserted in memory of those who died in the First World War whose names are recorded in the glass. After the Second World War a plaque with the name of those killed was added. Below the figure of Christ in Majesty are scenes from the life of Jesus. The church originally had a west end gallery complete with organ and seated some 600 persons in total. The organ was moved to the site of the present organ in 1883 and the gallery was taken down when the west window was dedicated as a memorial to those who died in the First World War. According to the Bolton News the church was closed in 2011 and seriously vandalised in 2016, with some windows smashed. See the Link.
