About the memorial: Paper Roll of Honour. Formerly at Trinity Wesleyan Methodist Church (now demolished) at corner of Preston New Road and Montague Street. The Lancashire Telegraph of 20 May 2015 takes up the story. "The memorial was passed on for safe keeping to the small Chapel Lane Wesleyan Methodist Church and Sunday School, built in the shadow of Hoghton Tower in 1794. But then that church closed and when builders and new owners were working there, the commemoration was discovered. It was in a very poor state and would have been skipped but for the timely arrival of researcher Roy Fox. He searched all the names and realised that they were from around the Trinity Chapel in Blackburn. He found the baptism register and two boxes of papers at the Lancashire Archives in Preston and got in touch with the Lancashire Family History and Heraldry Society – which is where Tony Foster, a club official, came in. Tony said: “The roll of honour was in a very poor state and badly twisted. “A large piece had been lost from a corner and the names were very faded. “However, we got to work on it and it has been totally remade.” Now, the memorial has been passed on to Superintendent Minister John Howard-Norman at Wesley Hall, in Fielden Street, Blackburn. Among more than 40 names is that of Nurse Ann Ellen Beaver, of the Territorial Force Nursing Service, who served for two years before illness forced her to leave."
