About the memorial: Memorial Windows – In the Wesleyan Chapel twenty memorial windows have been placed to perpetuate the memory of those fallen in the Great War who were connected with the Sunday School or congregation. The central windows on the lground floor are different in design from the rest, the coloured glass form a large lily, under which are two crowns, and the dates 1914 – 1919 and the following inscription "In loving memory of our fallen hero's, and our deep gratitude to God for those spared to us". The remaining windows are of similar design, with less detail. The cost of the windows is £250 and they have been designed and erected by Mr. William Spence of Leeds. The ground floor windows have one mullion and measure 2100mm x 1280mm. The first floor windows have two mullion's and measure 2380mm x 1860mm. The centre windows on the first floor are of the same design as the ground floor but with only one crown and no dates, the remaining sixteen windows are inscribed with one or two names of the fallen.
