About the memorial: The present building is clearly new. The General Memorial at St. Joseph's was the renovation and decoration of the whole church and installation of electric lights the names of those killed were on a Memorial Painting. The work began early 1923 and was carried out by R. Nicholson, Associate of the Institution of British Decorators, of Preston and Longridge. The Memorial Painting was fixed in the Sacred Heart Chapel and took the form of a painting measuring 6ft by 4ft (1.8M by 1.2m). In the centre was the figure of Christ in the tomb and hovering above were two angles. The painting was oil on zinc. Underneath were seven Panels. The first represented a soldier's grave, copied from a photograph. The next five panels contained the names of the 80 men killed in the Great War. The last panel was a painting symbolising a sailor's grave, with a buoy bearing a laurel wreath. There was a figure of an angel on either side of the memorial. Underneath was the dedication.
