About the memorial: There was an impressive ceremony yester afternoon at West Parade Wesleyan Church, Lincoln, when a marble tablet, in loving memory of the six men of the church who fell in the Great War was unveiled. The tablet, which has been worked out of one solid slab of pure white marble, is of the domestic Doric period or style, and is surmounted on an English red alabaster background. The heading or cornice, which is delicately moulded, is supported by two Doric carved caps and fluted pilasters, rising from a moulded base. The centre of the heading is enriched with a laurel wreath, on either side is the date 1914-1918. On the centre panel, which is left slightly raised, is engraved the main inscription, with the names of the fallen members of the church as follows: The whole of the work of the tablet has been exquisitely carried out locally by Messes H. Tuttell & Son, Sculptors, Lincoln. The tablet was unveiled by Mr. G. Leckenby (of Norwich) The Rev. J. Henry Martin, H.C.F. pronounced the Benediction.
