About the memorial: In sacred remembrance and appreciation of the boys and men of this church and parish who made the supreme sacrifice during the great war, a handsomely designed memorial tablet, containing 108 names has been erected in St. Peter at Gowts Church, Lincoln. The tablet, which measures 11ft 6ins in height and 4ft in width, has been placed on a blank wall space, midway down the south wall of the nave. It has been designed by Messrs Temple, Moore & Moore, of Hampstead, London and makes an imposing and arresting addition to the stately interior of the church. The lettering, of old Roman type, is painted on mahogany panels, and the beautiful carved frame has been carved out of solid oak. Surmounting the Roll is a striking picture of St. Michael slaying the dragon. The whole has been richly gilded by Messrs Head and Sons of Colchester, and the woodwork and carving exquisitely executed by Messes Thompson of Peterborough. Exclusive of the architects fee, the contract for the memorial was £150, which has been met by public subscription. The names of the fallen are alphabetically arranged on the Roll. An impressive ceremony, which struck more a note of triumph than sadness, took place on Thursday evening, when the tablet was unveiled by Capt. H.J. Torr. May 27th 1920
