About the memorial: WAR MEMORIAL: Thursday last week was a memorial day in the annals of this village, when a large concourse assembled to witness the ceremony of unveiling the new clock, recently placed in the church tower, and the memorial stone placed below it recording the names of the Timberland men who fell in the late war. The proceedings commenced with a dedication service in the churchyard, at 6.45 p.m., when prayer was offered by the Rev. J. P. Langham, of Lincoln. The Bishop of Lincoln, then unveiled the clock and tablet, and the clock struck seven. The service was continued in the church, where the lesson was read by the Rev. J. P. Langham, and the Bishop gave an address. The church and Wesleyan choirs sang processional hymns. Miss F. Thurlby being at the organ. The Rev. E. H. Scott (Wesleyan minister, of Metheringham) was announced to have taken part in the service, but was unavoidably prevented through illness. The inscription on the tablet reads as follows: - “To the glory of God, and in remembrance of the men who in the great war, 1914 – 1918, laid down their lives for the sake of right, honour and freedom, the clock in the tower is dedicated. Harry Sleaford, George Smith, Thomas Spencer, Lieut. E. Austin, M. Wimbrush R.A.F., D.F.C., Thomas Bembrose, Arthur Creasey, Joseph Creasey, George Dowse, John Elley, John W. Hare, Sergeant H. Ingall, Ben D. Ingamells, Fred Pask, John Rush. Therefore shall they receive a glorious kingdom and a beautiful crown from the Lord’s hand.” Lincolnshire Chronicle 22nd May 1920
