World War 1 Roll of Honour


In the old chapel, now used as a community room, are two memorials to two brothers.
One is a brass Wall Plaque, the other is a Memorial Organ.

The wording on the Wall Plaque is:
In affectionate Remembrance of two teachers connected with this Sunday School who paid the supreme sacrifice.

This tablet is erected by their fellow teachers and friends.

A tablet fixed on the Memorial Organ reads as follows:
This Organ was presented to the Trustees of this Chapel,
August 14th 1924 by E. & M.L.Armitage and Family
in memory of their two sons Pte. E. Armitage and Gunner H. Armitage who gave their lives in the Great War 1914-18.
