About the memorial: On Sunday afternoon the Parish Church was crowded on the occasion of the unveiling of the memorial Reredos, erected to the memory of Somercotes lads who laid down their lives in the Great War. The Reredos is erected in the south-east corner of the church, and is of carved oak, the design and the works both being executed by Mr. Fernaly of Manchester. The cost, about £80, has been raised by free will offerings, without any special effort whatsoever. An interesting fact, mentioned by the vicar, is that the table consists of the old altar stone of the church, many centuries old, which was discovered some time ago buried in the churchyard. The memorial was unveiled by Mrs. Lougheed of London, wife of Dr. Lougheed who recently left North Somercotes after residing in the parish for over 20 years and her son was one of the boys who made the supreme sacrifice. After the unveiling of the Reredos the vicar the Rev. F.L.Fusbrooke dedicated it. The following are the names inscribed in letters of gold on the Reredos: - Lincolnshire Chronicle 6th May 1922 The reredos stands some 2750mm high by about 2000mm wide with 150 x 150 pillars, with three panels on which are carved eleven names on left and right panels, the in inscription “Because I live ye shall live also” is carved in semi-circle arc on the centre panel. The inscription “In memory of the North Somercotes men who fell in the Great War 1914- 1918” Following the second world war, the following was carved on separate panel and added to the centre panel under the existing inscription. 1939 – 1945
