Following the discovery that the original memorial from St John's church had been lost a replacement memorial was commissioned with financial assistance from  the Barnsley Central Ward Devolved Budget. It was agreed that the memorial should be installed in St Peter's Church on Doncaster Road, Barnsley and the lower of the two photos above shows both St Peter's and St John's memorial in place in the church.
