About the memorial: a Roll of Honour was unveiled in the Day School by Major Weston Cracroft Amcotts, M.C., who gave an appropriate address to the scholars present. This beautiful work of art is the gift of the head teacher, Miss Tattershall, and was executed by Messrs. John Heywood, Manchester. It contains the names of 37 old scholars of the school who joined the Forces, nine of whom made the supreme sacrifice. A fitting tribute to these gallant lads was the beautiful rendering by the school children of the hymn for the fallen, after the unveiling of the tablet. Miss Ball accompanied on the piano. Mr. E. W. Cracroft, J.P., on behalf of the Managers, accepted the gift to the school, Mr. J. M. Riggall proposing a vote of thanks to the donor and to Major Amcotts for kindly coming over that day to unveil the memorial and tablet. The Roll of Honour was subsequently the centre of much admiration.
