About the memorial: Organ with brass dedication plaque in a wooden frame. The Organ was built by The Positive Organ Company. A local historian suggests that it was built around 1910 and transferred to Esh Road Church from elsewhere, NPOR suggest that it was new in 1920. The Church closed in 1954 and was demolished. At that time it was moved to Broompark Methodist Church. In the year 200o it was sold to Our Lady Queen of Peace Church, Penshaw, and was later moved again to St Joseph's Chapel at Ushaw College. The Colege closed as a Catholic Seminary in 2011 and is now part of Durham University
