About the memorial: The entire baptistry is the memorial. Within the baptistry is a stained glass window and a names tablet. There is currently no other information about the tablet. One of those named is Douglas Hyde Flaherty (9 May 1880- 1 July 1916, listed by CWGC as Douglas Hill O'Flaherty). He had a bed endowed in his memory at the Ulster Volunteer Hospital (see full details of the hospital on WMO/291855) by Mr W R M McCall JP who was the Belfast consul for Venezuela and Haiti. He is also commemorated in Belfast on WMO/291795, 291797 and 291855. The stained glass window, by Heaton, Butler and Bayne was unveiled and dedicated on 24 April 1921 and has 3 lights. There are also a number of names plaques for individuals. Currently only that for Adam Cyril Darley Hill is known about. That has, correctly, been taken to a separate report both for clarity and to be able to 'tag' his name properly
