  • Second World War (1939-1945)
About the memorial: In perpetuation of the memory of the members of the Wesley Chapel of Gainsborough who lost their lives in the Great War, a beautiful war memorial tablet was unveiled by Major Bell in the presence of a crowded congregation… The Wesley Chapel has a proud record, as no less than 68 names have been inscribed on a Roll of Honour, and to the memory of eight of the fallen a brass tablet has been erected in front of the rostrum. The Rev. J.P. Taylor Superintendent Wesleyan Minister, presided over Sunday's service, which was most solemn and impressive, and he was supported by the Rev. Canon Standen, M.A. Vicar of Gainsborough; ...The service was unique in the history of the Wesley Chapel, inasmuch as the ceremony commemorated the supreme sacrifice made by some of the members of the Church during the war, and also by the fact that a prominent Anglican Minister took part in the service for the first time. The members of the Urban District Council attended the service, as did also the local company of Territorials…, the St. John Ambulance Brigade… Major Molson, M.P. … congratulated the Wesley Chapel upon their record, and the 68 men who had returned and paid further tribute to the to the soldiers, particularly our “Glorious Dead”. Unveiling the tablet, while the congregation stood silent, Major Bell read out:- Major Bell then paced a laurel wreath at the foot of the memorial and immediately afterwards the Buglers of the Territorials sounded “The Last Post.” This was followed by a two minutes impressive silence, and then the service closed with the hymn “For all the Saints” and the Benediction.” Gainsborough News” 3rd December 1920
