About the memorial: On Thursday evening (last week) a large congregation assembled at the Parish Church for the service of dedication and unveiling of a brass tablet commemorating the men from the parish who fell during the Great War. The Vicar (Rev. R. Walker, B.A.) conducted the opening part of the service and the lessons were read by the Rev. Harold Ewbank, M.A., Sheffield, late chaplain in the Army in France. The tablet, a very beautiful memorial, which has been placed on the north wall of the nave, was unveiled by the Rev. C. B. Collinson, who read the inscription and the thirty names of the men, with the names of the regiments and the dates of the deaths. These names are also on the memorial at Grey Green and were published in the “Bells” when the parish memorial was unveiled. After the reading of the names the National Anthem was sung. An appropriate sermon was preached by the Rev. Harold Ewbank, M.A., from the text “let us now praise famous men”. Epworth Bells Saturday April 9th 1921.
