Park Methodist Church Memorial


The memorial is located in the small Park Methodist Church in Binfield Street. The simple memorial is a mounted script in a black glazed frame, the name sequence seems to be random.

It appears to have been made by a member of the church as it has a home-made look, especially the bible verse. This gives the memorial a warmth as it was obviously made with love by the church congregation.

There are 20 names on the memorial, however there are 22 names listed below. This is because John Hume should have been spelt John Hulme, and there are 2 entries for J. Williams as it has not been possible to determine which option is correct.
