  • This is a very long shot but at various times local newspapers ran regular reviews of church services on similar lines to their theatre reviews. It could be worth a search on the British Newspapers Archive site if all else fails.

  • Can anyone supply me with a detailed typical service with Hymn choices etc from around WWI era . I’m writing a novel and I’m really struggling to come up with this information. The chapel I am featuring in my novel is the one on Princess St that was bombed
