About the memorial: A pair of standard enamelled pewter Candlesticks or Sanctuary Lights. The stems are fluted and enamelled blue, with gold knobs up each spine. Inscription is in raised sans serif lettering, coloured gold on a blue background. 1. "The candlesticks are for beauty and utility. They are symbolical and they are a touching and tender memorial to all those who from Hexham fell in the Great War 1914.(The rector, Edwin Sidney Savage, M.A.) 2. The designer, Temple Moore, also designed the 1908 nave of the Abbey. 3. "The Sanctuary Lights themselves are exceedingly handsome specimens of the work of the artist craftsman. Tall and stately in appearance, the colour work is rarely beautiful, and they are a fit adornment of one of the noblest sanctuary settings in the country. Electroliers or Gasoliers or Candlesticks might be equally symbolical, but candlesticks were more seemly. 4. The person who gave me the names gave me 22, but now I have seen a written record and have found that there are. Although there are no names on the candlesticks these are the men who were being commemorated- Capt. Reginald Head, Border Regt. Lieut. Drew Little, 9th D.L.I. Lieut. Frank Taylor Iveson 14th D.L.I. attached to 5th Manchesters Lieut. J.T. Redpath K.O.S.B. Engineer E.T. Baty R.N.R. Arthur Patterson R.M.L.I. William Wilson R.N. William Wilkinson R.N. Pte. J.
