In Grateful and Loving
Memory of the
Lads of our Sunday School

They shall not grow as we that

age shall not weary them, nor
years condemn.

Unveiling of the War Memorial
29th October 1921

The War Memorial, which stood in front of the main entrance to the Sunday School on Bank Street, was unveiled on the 29th of October 1921. It was moved in the early 1960s when the Sunday School was demolished and now stands in the Graveyard opposite the Church main entrance.
