- ALBURY WAR MEMORIAL Dedication Service, Sunday March 5th. 1922 Service of Commemoration programme:
THE MEMORIAL: The project for the Erection in the Parish Church of a Memorial, which should be a parochial tribute to the men killed in the War, was initiated in May 1920 at a Parish Meeting; as an outcome of the scheme proceeded under the direction of:
COMMITTEE: His Grace the Duke of Northumberland, The Rev. H.E.Crowley, Mr. W.W. Rhoades, Mr. C.A. Botting, Mrs. Malthus, Miss Capadose (Hon. Sec.), Mr. Z. Pollard, Miss M. King-Church, Mr. W. Knight, Mr. J. Gadd, Mr. G.H. Coe, Mr. G.E. Foard, Mr. A Osborne, Mr. E. Browne.
ARCHITECT: Mr. G.F. Metcalfe.
MASONS: Messrs. Arthur Moon & Sons.
CASTERS: The Albion Art Foundry, Ltd.
The stone-work—a niche with semi-circular arch, carved with double chevrons and supported by pillars—is in Hopton Wood Stone and is of a Romanesque character akin to the style of the church. In the niche is a bronze relief—kneeling figure of a soldier. The names of the fallen are incised in the stone below and the offering-up of their lives is shown, in symbol, by a lighted lamp borne in the soldier's hands. In the space under the arch is a painting; an angel reads from a scroll the record of all that was accomplished and endured in the great war, and with a harp and voice angels give thanks to God Who has given such gifts unto men.
