About the memorial: WAR MEMORIAL A denominational war memorial was unveiled, in the course of the service, at the Red Lion Street Congregational Church, on Sunday last by the minister (the Rev. W. Hutton). The memorial comprises a roll of honour, made and presented to the church by Mr. Ablard, of Boston. The roll contains the names of six men who have fallen in the war, and about 26 other men associated with the church, who have served. The Rev. W. Hutton said he esteemed it a great honour to unveil the roll: honouring those who had fallen; sympathising with their friends; and congratulating those who had served and returned on having done their duty, and the latter, also, on having been delivered from death. He further expressed the hope that all of them would prove worthy of the sacrifice that had been made, and the peace which resulted. Boston Guardian - 22 November 1919 – page 7 The names of the fallen were: M. W. Brown C. G. S. Claypool D. J. Harrison W. Herringshaw A. L. Pentelow J. W. Stray After the Second World War two further names were added W. E. Newton G. Tebbs. Designed by Arthur Hackford, of 12 Witham Place. This memorial has not survived but, before it was lost, an embroidery was made of the names it contain. This framed work is on the wall of the main meeting room in the church.
