HAMBLETON METHODIST CHURCH , GOOLE & SELBY CIRCUIT
The War Memorial used to be mounted above the pulpit, but there were worshippers who were not happy facing a plaque with rifles on. Some years ago, the seating was changed round, so the Memorial is now at the back! Here is the wording;
In memory of the men of this parish
who made the supreme sacrifice in the
Great War 1914-1919

‘Greater love hath no man than this.’
