  • Boer War, Second (1899-1902)
About the memorial: St. Hugh completed in 1962, designed by Haines and Johnson of Brigg, using all that could be salvaged from the Chapel of the former Walmsgate Hall which was built in 1901 in memory of their only son lost in the 2nd Boer War and dedicated to St. Francis, one description of the chapel goes:- “It has a charming interior, with walls delicately patterned, t railing fine in the roof, which shines with gold, and a sanctuary canopied with a blend of blue and silver and gold, two silver candlesticks and a silver cross adorn the altar, and there is a font of bronze, shaped like a flower, Above the door is a plaque, bronze in colour, with the kneeling figure of a youth, in an act of dedication like a knight of old clasping the hilt of a sword, head slightly raised, the son, in whose memory this chapel was built. Many parts of the Walmsgate chapel which were a gift from Bishop Riches, who dedicated St. Hugh’s on 8th September 1962 were used including sections off the gold decorations, the bronze font, the silver candlesticks and cross on the altar, and the memorial over the doorway to Haliburton Francis Dallis-Yorke. When in Walmsgate Hall it was bronze in colour, and no explanation found as yet as to why it was decorated with green paint in it’s new surrounds. Also retained are Henry Wilson’s superb doors with bronze handles, the hanging lamps, and the high altar with its suspended baldacchino, also the beams with vines. The marble floor of the chancel is now covered by s carpet. The organ, bell (recast by Taylors of Loughborough) and iron staircase were originally in the chapel.
